BGP community announcement?
Posted on 2011-09-29
Realizing that I'm way out of my comfort zone, I had our bandwidth carrier do some troubleshooting for a possible network related issue to and from one of our managed server providers. Having done the troubleshooting end-to-end I wanted to make sure that there isn't any silliness on the BGP routes, etc.
Here is what the network person Above.net mentioned:
" We can have you apply the community 6461:5550 to your route announcements to us for the 209.*.*.*/24 block" ... "The other community that we could use is 6461:5000, which suppress the route to all peers, but I would suggest doing it to just L3 to start."
That being said, on the 6509, do I need to update the appropriate route-map to accomplish this?
Let me know if you need more details.
