    Could not understand this....

    "loop prevention van BGP is “als AS hetzelfde is dan hebben we een loop maar dit kan niet met ibgp want AS is altijd hetzelfde.”. dus wat doen we dan….IBGP -> IBGP -> IBGP niet doorsturen."

  3. Hello Rene,
    in the example above i got confused with the next-self-hop command. As we see that R4 have not learned the network!!! i wonder why R4 did not learn it from IGP/iBGP? my question is does IGP carry and advertise iBGP routes? can you please explain the benefit of the next-self-hop command ??? Thanks


  4. Hi Nav,

    There's not really a reason to use iBGP on customer networks. Even if a customer uses BGP, it's typically only used on the border (eBGP). Since your network has only one exit point, you can use a default route in your IGP.


  5. Hi Rene,

    Do you have any posts that explain BGP status codes and origin codes ?
