Down BGP sessions stay in only IDLE state by command : sh ip bgp summary. The router knows the path to the neighbor. For example:
80.81.192.A 4 2528B 0 0 0 0 0 01:31:26 Idle
Type escape sequence to abort.
Sending 5, 100-byte ICMP Echos to 126.96.36.199, timeout is 2 seconds:
!!!!! Success rate is 100 percent (5/5)
I don't see them as Active and it is strange to me...
Could you explain it?
