Hello Community,

a short Question about VPN Gateway with active BGP Settings.

I would like to connect 10 Local Network Gateways with Azure. 2 of this Connections with BGP and the Other 8 with normale static Routes.

Must i use two Gateways for this use case or can i activate the BGP Settings on the Gateway and can decide if i want to use BGP on the local Connection or not?

So can i use the same VPN Gateway for BGP Connections and VPN Connections without BGP?

Thanks a lot.

Best Regards,
Phil

    @PhilippGerber-6516 Thank you for your questions.

    First you can use your VPN Gateway for both connections: BGP and Non-BGP. https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/vpn-gateway/vpn-gateway-vpn-faq#can-i-mix-bgp-with-non-bgp-connections-for-my-azure-vpn-gateways
    Now, If you use BGP for a connection, leave the Address space field empty for the corresponding local network gateway resource. Azure VPN Gateway adds a host route internally to the on-premises BGP peer IP over the IPsec tunnel.
