  1. Hi Rene,
    everything was clear about this lesson but am confused why did you configure AS 12 on Router CE1? It should have been AS1. If we configure different AS then we dont have to use Allowas-in command, right?

    hostname CE1
    interface Loopback0
    ip address
    interface GigabitEthernet0/1
    ip address
    duplex auto
    speed auto
    media-type rj45
    router bgp 12
    bgp log-neighbor-changes
    network mask
    neighbor remote-as 234
    neighbor allowas-in

  2. Lal,
    Good catch. The text of the article is consistent in that each CE is using AS 12, but the picture at the beginning of the article shows them as using AS 1 (it should be 12). I will make sure this gets corrected.

    It's clear you have paid attention and understood the lesson!

  3. Excellent lab Rene! keep it up!

  4. Hi Rene,

    Might be a dumb question.. but can i just know the reason why under address-family ipv4 the neighbor was set to "No" to be activated?

  5. Hi Eleever,

    You mean this part?

     address-family ipv4
      no neighbor activate
     address-family vpnv4
      neighbor activate
      neighbor send-community extended

    What is does is that we don't exchange IPv4 unicast routes but only VPNv4 routes with our neighbor.
