We have two client locations which are connected to service provider network and interconnected too by vpn link.
We are running ibgp from loc -1 to service provider.
Static route from loc 2 to service provider.
WE want to run ebgp and (load balancing between two locations).Why ebgp is preffered over Ibgp pls help.
Take note that all router running iBGP in the same AS domain should be fully meshed, else use Route Reflector.
It takes more what information you have given me so far to decide whether eBGP or iBGP is appropriate to you.
But since your Service Provider is involve in the iBGP, I rather you have eBGP than iBGP because whatever your Service Provider do in their BGP domain will affect you directly. Using eBGP, you provide more protection to your AS domain.
Attached is clear picture of what I have recommend above.
