Use the set form of this command to enable a BGP instance on the router, and set its AS. All subsequent BGP configuration falls under this configuration node.

Note that you cannot create another BGP instance for a given AS as only one BGP instance per AS is currently supported in Vyatta NOS.

Use the delete form of this command to disable BGP on the router, removing all BGP configuration.

Use the show form of this command to view all BGP configuration.
