Different BGP Routes On Each End Of Link?

Does it matter if the provider is not set to receive a network I am broadcasting across the link? So if I have 1.1.1.0/24 and they don't, will the BGP session still come up and traffic route over the link? Thanks!

Yes let's say I have 1.1.1.0/24 and 1.2.2.0/24 broadcasting out a BGP session to a provider... If the provider only has 1.1.1.0/24 on their end of the BGP session, will it still come up successfully and traffic still be able to be routed? Sorry, not sure if I am being clear, thanks!

Okay, there are some terminology issues we're going to have to address.

When you say "broadcasting out a BGP session to a provider". I don't know what you're trying to say. BGP doesn't broadcast anything. Peers are manually defined. The updates are unicast. And the routes can be manually defined, redistributed from another routing protocol or forwarded from another BGP peer.

"If the provider only has 1.1.1.0/24 on their end of the BGP session". Do you mean that they have a route for that network? Or are They connected to that network? And where is this network?

Allow me to chime in...

I think when you say broadcasting, you mean "advertising".  So, you are advertising 1.1.1.0/24 and 1.2.2.0/24 to your ISP.  There is no "receive advertisement" config so to speak on a BGP router.  It will accept whatever you advertise to it if a valid peer session exists and you are not filtering.  If your ISP is filtering routes received by you and only are allowing 1.1.1.0/24 in their filter list, then you would have an issue advertising 1.2.2.0/24 as it would be filtered by your ISP and not propagated furher so routing won't work.  Is this what you are asking?

Yes thanks! All my other traffic (the network the ISP does have) should continue to flow over the link even though only one of the networks is configured on the ISP side correct?

Yes, if they are filtering and only accepting the one network you are currently advertising and you advertise the other one, nothing will happen to current traffic.
