BGP EBGP peer

Unanswered Question

I am not sure if I understand this request clearly, or it can actually work.

Router 1 in customer 1 network is in BGP AS 1 and Router 2 in customer 2 network in BGP AS 2. They want to peer Router 1 to Router 2, but they don't want them to be EBGP peers, since Customer 1 acquired customer 2.

Please kindly advise. Thanks.

but they don't want them to be EBGP peers,


I'm assuming they want to be iBGP?

What's wrong with changing the AS on Customer 2?

I guess Router 2 in AS 2 alreay peered to other ISPs, or other parties,it will involve

a lot of work, say making a lot of calls...

Fair enough.


What's the requirement for them to be iBGP peers over eBGP peers?


I'm trying to understand why eBGP is not a feasible solution to a peering and why iBGP is preferred.
