Sethtek-G and Sethtek-H are set up as BGP neighbors in AS 190. PPP serial link between the two, with G's serial IP 172.16.0.1; H's .2.
Each has three loopback interfaces configured (and declared in the BGP config). G has 188.8.131.52; 184.108.40.206; 220.127.116.11. H has the same but with 208's in 207's places.
I declared the first two in each's BGP process (saving the third for later debugging experiments).
So each of the declared loopback networks shows up just fine in each other's BGP tables, but not in their IP routing tables. Did I read wrong when I read that the optimal BGP path gets installed in the IP routing table? Not talking about redistributing into other routing protocols, just appearing as BGP routes in the IP table. Why's that not happening.
Also, why is Sethtek-H's bgp updates debugging output saying
02:43:42: BGP(0): no valid path for 18.104.22.168/24
every 20 seconds? G's is doing the same, for the 208.208. network. If it thinks there's no valid path why is it allowing it in the BGP table?
Thanks for ur help every1.
