Hi All,

I have a 1720 rtr with IOS: 12.1(6)

It has EBGP peering with ISP rtr. No IBGP on the rtr.


BGP config:

router bgp 1111

bgp log-neighbor-changes

network mask

network mask

neighbor remote-as 2222

neighbor next-hop-self

neighbor soft-econfiguration inbound

neighbor route-map test out


How do I know, if BGP synchronization is enabled/desabled on this rtr. Is there any command whose o/p shows that..?

Thank you in advance

If I'm not mistaken, if you don't see "no syncronization" in the BGP config, syncronization is ON.

Hi MS,

BGP synchronization is off by default in Cisco IOS release 12.2(8)T and later.

If you don't see the "no synchronization" in the "show running-config" output, this means synchronization is set to the default value, which is "on" in your version of IOS, that is : enabled.
