BGP Local Preference

Last Modified: 2017-04-04
on the diagram below we can make R4  choose R3 instead of R2 to get to Network behind R1
However, what if we have R5 on AS2 that has one link connected to R4 and one link connected to R2, then is R5 will choose R4 to get to or it will choose R2  ?

R3(config)# route-map LocalPref permit 10
R3(config-route-map)#set local-preference 700

R3(config)# Router bgp 2
R3(config-router)neighbor route-map LocalPref in
