Hi all, Hope every is well :)
In the output below, the ip address (y.y.y.y) in brackets? What is this? It is not the BGP next hop for my external peer that I peer with so I am assuming it is an IP address from where the external peer received the prefix from? Either that or the external peers BGP RID?
router>sh ip bgp 126.96.36.199
BGP routing table entry for 188.8.131.52/24, version 477158
Paths: (1 available, best #1, table Default-IP-Routing-Table)
Advertised to peer-groups:
x.x.x.x from x.x.x.x (y.y.y.y)
Origin incomplete, localpref 100, valid, external, best
Can anyone please clarify and tell me two things :-
1. Where can I find documentation on this output (I mean in the detailed format "show ip bgp <network>"
2. There must be a field in the BGP update packet to carry this address to my BGP table. What is it?
Many thx indeed for your help,
