Re: BGP4 COMMUNITY attribute

  • From: Alexandre Leib Grojsgold
  • Date: Thu Mar 27 14:25:47 1997

Regardless of the COMMUNITY attribute being pushed further or not, one
must keep in mind that an AS will only advertise to other AS's  the route it
has selected itself as "best route".

It means that one's ability to influence routing decisions of ASes "far
away" is minimal, not to say =zero.

Alexandre.
