Hello Yuhui,

without additional configuration on some router the answer is no for the eBGP loop avoidance rule that doesn't accept a BGP advertisement that contain my own AS number.

You have two options:

a) router in AS 65000 use neigh ... as-override

b) both routers in AS 65002 use

neigh X allowas-in 1

Hope to help

Hot Topic Gentlemen,

Please post links and some guidance for carriers who support redundant ISP. We'd like to have the 2nd ISP DIA deployed and fully operational in 2008 (I could use a real raise). Thank you, Ladies | Gentlemen
