hello i am new to palo alto 

i recently configured bgp on my palo alto pa 500 device and my bgp peer is getting connected and then after a minute it gets disconnected and the bgp state becomes active. also i am using md5 key for authentication. could you please help me with a possible solution or reason. thank you


You can create filters but that would be used to allow only certain prefixes. Some would be blocked so you wouldn't have routes to these networks.

If you need to support over 2000 prefixes, you'll need a larger device.   You should check with your reseller or PA to size correctly.

Also, for the malformed AS message, are you using a 2 byte or 4 byte AS number? Did you select the correct option in the BGP config on the PA?

@rmfalconer sir i am using 4byte AS number.

Also i have created route filter but still BGP is getting connected and then disconnected.

so that is also not working. what could be the possbile issue?


thank you
