We are receiving prefixes from our partners with multiple communities set which is specific to the locations. Say for exampls




Similar to the above one.

I want to set the preference high for all the communities xxxx:xx-- the last 2 digits can be any value.

The last 2 digits are actually dont care bits.

One way is to define the community list with as many entries as the communities that i m receiving from the partner and set the local preference with route map. But the problem here is i m receiving around 50 communities from the same partner.

I want to add a single entry in community list with last 2 digits being dont care.

somthing like

ip community-list test permit xxxx:xx**

Is it any way I can achieve this.
