iBGP routing over IPSec (SD-WAN)

Hi Team,


i am currently on the testing configuration for SD-WAN using IPSec tunnel and configure the iBGP routing.

i am not experienced with Forti SDWAN, so the image below is my topology :

Screenshot 2023-10-19 163852.png

WAN using static ip public.

if i am using static route

ISP 1 /28 same subnet and ISP 2 /29 same subnet.

destination 192.168.x.0/24 via interface SDWAN, from port.7 Site A can ping to port.7 Site B.

ipsec tunnel and sdwan status is up.

and then i want to change the routing from static route to iBGP routing. but i dont get the routing table for BGP.



Hi @Dz,


Can you check and make sure BGP peering is up? Please refer to

Hi @hbac ,


below the summary bgp routing, currently my configuration stuck on Active state.


Site-Branch-A (root) # get router info bgp summary
VRF 0 BGP router identifier, local AS number 65000
BGP table version is 1
2 BGP AS-PATH entries
0 BGP community entries

Neighbor V AS MsgRcvd MsgSent TblVer InQ OutQ Up/Down State/PfxRcd 4 65000 0 0 0 0 0 never Active 4 65000 0 0 0 0 0 never Active

Total number of neighbors 2


Hi @Dz ,

Please make sure you configure the local and remote IPs on the Tunnel interface, i.e.:

config system interface
edit "Tunnel-ISP-X"
set vdom <VDOM-name>
set ip <local-IP>     #<----make sure to set this
set type tunnel
set remote-ip <remote-IP>       #<----make sure to set this
set interface <physical-interface>

Please also make sure you can ping the remote BGP peer using the correct source IP ("exec ping-options source <local-IP>" and "exec ping <remote-IP>").
You can also run a packet sniffer in CLI (in VDOM context) to see if you send/receive ICMP or BGP packets ("diag sniffer packet any 'host x.x.x.x and (proto 1 or port 179)' 4 0 l" ).
