How is RR triggered?
Its the 5th message in the BGP message repertoire of messages, but how is it triggered? Capabilities are exchanged during peer setup using the BGP-CAP submessage of the OPEN message exchange.
So, I change an inbound route policy, apply it to the neigbor statement....and then? How does the peer know to send the BGP table again so that the new policy can be applied?
I could have asked this on yesterday's thread, but by checking "issue resolved," I sort of closed the it.
Just labbed it up to check.
I used a distribute-list to filter incoming routes. I then removed the distribute-list and had debugging turned on for BGP and nothing.
When i then issued the command "clear ip bgp ...etc" a ROUTE REFRESH messages was then sent to the peer.
I'm using dynamips with 3725 routers running 12.4(21) so it's fairly recent code. I didn't leave it that long, approx 20 seconds before issuing the "clear ip bgp ....." command. I can retest with a longer wait if you like ?
