VBR has a route table. You can configure route entries in the route table to forward traffic.

Background information

In the VBR, you must add one route entry directed to the physical connection and another route entry directed to the VPC to forward the traffic between the VPC and the on-premises data center. VBR allows you to configure BGP routing for the on-premises data center. For more information, see Configure BGP.

When you manage the route entries of VBR, pay attention to the following restrictions:
  • Each route table supports up to 48 custom route entries.
  • Source address policy routing is not supported.
