This question pertains to a 12008/GRP running 12.0(32)S5.

I'm trying to configure IPv6 BGP peering according to

I'm not using link-local address peering, yet my router seemingly tries to open using the interface's link-local address rather than its global address:

Jan 25 17:02:10 EST5EDT: BGP: 2001:ABCD:CDEF::102D open active, local address FE80::203:6BFF:FEAB:CDEF

Jan 25 17:02:10 EST5EDT: BGP: 2001:ABCD:CDEF::102D open failed: Connection refused by remote host

How do I force my router _not_ to use the link-local address (since I assume this is the problem)? Relevant config:

interface GigabitEthernet4/0

ipv6 address 2001:ABCD:CDEF::102E/126


router bgp 2

neighbor X peer-group

neighbor X remote-as 1


address-family ipv4

no neighbor 2001:ABCD:CDEF::102D activate



address-family ipv6

neighbor X activate

neighbor 2001:ABCD:CDEF::102D peer-group X
