Hi,

I need to know if there is a way of telling if a bgp neighbor is using MD5 without having to read the running-config.

Is there some show command that does it?

I can't find one.

Thanks

No, that is not visible in any show command. You need to look at the current config to see if there is a password defined or not for the peer. If there is a password, it is using md5.

router bgp 12345
 no synchronization
 bgp log-neighbor-changes
 neighbor 1.2.3.4 remote-as 1222
 neighbor 1.2.3.4 password cisco
 no auto-summary

OK. I already knew I could check in the running-config, but I'll take your answer as confirmation that there is no other way. A bit daft is you ask me.
