HI Rupesh, [Pls RATE if HELPS]


In general, the Route-Reflector are called as the Server.


The Routers that form neighbourship with the RR are called as Clients.


The Updates are exchanged between the Server & Clients only.


The word "non-client" means, the Router doesnot have session with the Route-Reflector itself.


Kindly add more information to the Question to help further.


Best Regards,


Guru Prasad R

Hello Guru,


>> The word "non-client" means, the Router doesnot have session with the Route-Reflector itself


Actually the meaning is different a non client iBGP neighbor is an iBGP neighbor that has a normal iBGP session with the RRS.

(it is missing the


neigh x.x.x.x route-reflector-client

on the RRS)

This is a legitimate configuration and allows to build a full mesh of RR Servers for example in a service provider network.

The updates received by a RRS are treated differently if arriving from a client or from a non-client:

updates coming from a client are reflected to all other clients and all non clients.

updates coming from a non-client are sent only to clients not to other non clients.


Hope to help

Giuseppe
