Hi lucy,

you can see the AS number of neighbor with "show ip bgp Summary" command

in addition to previous reply....u will get error message if u trying configure a differnet AS, I dont recommend it in case cisco removed this safety pin and allows the reconfig on a new AS :-)

TST-POP1-NPE01(config)#router bgp 65001

BGP is already running; AS is 64512

Hello Lucy,

to see the AS number as seen by others do

sh run | beg router bgp

and look at the line that say

bgp confederation identifier that is the public AS number you are looking for

Hope to help
