Re: BGP Routing problem

  • From: Danny McPherson
  • Date: Thu Jun 05 11:36:07 1997

i believe (received-only) means that bgp soft-reconfiguration is configured 
for the peer and since some policy is denying the route, it won't be used .. 
unless a policy change occurs.

here's what we're currently hearing from you folks...

peer1.sjc1#sh ip bgp re 6180
BGP table version is 2830358, local router ID is 207.240.24.10
Status codes: s suppressed, d damped, h history, * valid, > best, i - internal
Origin codes: i - IGP, e - EGP, ? - incomplete

and it appears as though routing via alternet is working for the networks you 
mentioned.
