Is it normal for the captive portal zone be displayed on BGP sessions? Not using CP?

L1 Bithead

The session browser logs display BGP port 179 sessions trying to connect to the same destination peer address, in 2 different zones, the correct zone and the captive portal zone, is this normal? We are not using Captive Portal, but I do see it enabled under Device>User Identification>Captive Portal Settings.

Is BGP being used on the internal network?

This is likely caused by User Identification being enabled on the zone where your BGP isset up. if this zone does not need to have inbound connections matched against user-ID (typically the untrust or some kind of external zone), you can disable that option in the zone configuration

It is normal. Captive portal as destination zone in session browser even if it is disabled.
