  1. Rene,

    Great lesson however, I do have a question about prepending AS in ISP-1 because we don’t want other ISPs to learn about 10.10.10.10 is that correct?

    64984:0 is a number we get from ISP? It varies from ISP to ISP?
    If we need to add another loopback or network we can use the same community on the customer side which is 64984:0 or do we need something else?

    Please clarify.
    Thanks

  2. Hi Rene,

    Now I have a problem that makes me want to pull my hairs out. We’re a global company that has 5 different branches in 3 different countries. The current situation is every branch has its own private AS# and we use eBGP to connect all the branches. We have all the devices run OSPF and IBGP inside of each branch. As I said before, we have 5 different branches in 3 different countries, which means actually 3 branches we’ll need to use the same ISP.

  3. Hello,

    Is the prefix list defined on the Customer router in the example correct? I had to change it to 10.10.10.0/24 to get it to work in my testing.

    Thanks

  4. Hi Mark,

    It depends on your loopback interface. In my case, I had a /32 on the loopback which was advertised in BGP:

    Customer#show running-config | section bgp
    router bgp 10
     no synchronization
     bgp log-neighbor-changes
     network 10.10.10.10 mask 255.255.255.255

  5. Hi Rene,

    very nice introduction to BGP communities. However, I’ve a little improvement: A hint that communities were only forwarded from second router to a third one if send-community is activated on that neighborhood were be helpful.

    Br,
