Looking for BGP RFC's for CCIP study

Unanswered Question
Aug 2nd, 2007

Hi, anyone have a snapshot of the RFC's associated with the BGP cert test in the CCIP arena? Perhaps a url also.

I have this problem too.

Here you are a list of all the BGP RFCs (most of which are related CCIP):


but as you know you can't base you study for the exam on RFCs alone, as you must be aware of Cisco's implementation of BGP.

Hi Mouhammed...I'll check them out. Yes, I am aware of that. I am using my trusty Sam Halabi book as my main tool. One of my pals who has passed his CCIP/BGP test recommended I also read the appropriate RFC's so I needed to check it out. He was empahsizing the rfc's for attributes, route selection, rt reflectors and cnofederations. Perhaps, you have some exam insight on what I could use as prep material....thx again.

Hi David,

Sam Halabi's Internet Routing Architectures - 2nd Edition, is a wonderful book, you can also check Cisco BGP4 Command and Configuration Handbook, and finally the great Jeff Doyel's Cisco Routing TCPIP Volume 2.
