bgp issue urgent

Answered Question
Jun 26th, 2009

I have a site that shares the same public block, and at that site I have a route map that sets a metric to higher than our current site. I'm trying to connect to the public side, but I randomnly get there and I know why.

The pertinent parts are:

int s0/1

ip address 6.6.6.1 255.255.255.252

access-list 10 permit 5.5.5.0 0.0.0.127

route-map ADV permit 5

match ip address 10

set metric 100

set community x:x

router bgp 5

network 6.6.6.0 mask 255.255.255.252

network 5.5.5.0 mask 255.255.255.128

neighbor 1.1.1.1 send-community

neighbor 1.1.1.1 route-map ADV out

The problem is that I have a Fatpipe that all of my links come into at my main site. The traffic outbound can go out any one of those links. I realize that when it goes over the second link, it's not allowing me to get to the router and I think it's my route map.

Should I also create:

route-map ADV permit 20

and leave it blank? I don't think the 6.6.6.0 subnet is getting advertised.

Thanks!

John

I have this problem too.

Good luck. Routes not matching ACL 10 were being processed by the implicit deny on such route-map. That will always get you :)
