Hello,

This is not a simple task. It involves setting up the VPN (I’m assuming IPSec) and then setting up a GRE tunnel between the two endpoints. This can be done a little easier using tunnel protection profiles.

Once a GRE tunnel is established, one would then configure BGP to use the tunnel interfaces.

Performance will lack, since the GRE and IPSec tunnels will reduce the max mtu on the link.

Thanks!
