cn-routefeed: China Routefeed
cn-routefeed is a BGP speaker that feeds all China IPv4 delegations to peer. The delegation information is fetched from APNIC (from http://ftp.apnic.net/apnic/stats/apnic/delegated-apnic-latest).
cn-routefeed might be useful if you are trying to set up special routing for IPv4 routes that are based in China.
If APNIC changed the URL of delegation information file in the future, you could change that URL on line 5 of
cn-routefeed need the following build dependencies:
- g++ (or any other c++ compiler)
- cmake (optional)
For libbgp, please follow the installation instruction on the project page. For other build dependencies, you can install them on a Debian-based Linux distribution with the following
# apt install g++ libcurl4-nss-dev cmake
Once you have the dependencies installed, use the following commands to build
$ git clone https://github.com/nat-lab/cn-routefeed $ cd cn-routefeed $ mkdir build $ cd build $ cmake ../ $ make
Or, if you are not into the
cmake kind of thing, you can build the project with:
$ g++ *.cc -lbgp -lcurl -lpthread -oroutefeed
It should work on most of the cases.
cn-routefeed is a simple tool. The command-line help is pretty self-explanatory:
usage: routefeed [-l HOST] [-p PORT] [-t INTERVAL] -a ASN -i BGP_ID -n NEXTHOP [-c CONFIG] [-v] cn-routefeed is a BGP speaker that feeds all China IPv4 delegations to peer. Delegation information is fetch from APNIC. required arguments: -a ASN Local ASN of the BGP speaker. -i BGP_ID BGP ID (Router ID) of the BGP speaker. -n NEXTHOP Nexthop to use when sending routes. optional arguments: -l HOST IP address to bind the BGP speaker on. (default: 0.0.0.0) -p PORT TCP port number to bind the BGP speaker on. (default: 179) -t INTERVAL Time in second to wait between fetching update from APNIC. (default: 86400) -c CONFIG Read command line arguments from file. -v Enable debug mode (verbose).
For example, you can start a feeder with the following command:
# routefeed -a 65000 -i 172.16.0.1 -n 172.16.0.1
This command starts a BGP speaker on
0.0.0.0:179, with ASN 65000. It accepts peer with any ASN and will feed the peer with routes using
172.16.0.1 as nexthop.
