BGP Question

router BGP 65000

network 1.1.1.0 mask 255.255.255.0

ip route 1.1.1.0 255.255.255.0 null0 254

I need the static route and it has to be an exact match because the network command is utilizing the 'mask' keyword. Thats not my question.

What if I wanted to advertise an aggregate address, do I still need the static route?

router BGP 65000

network 1.1.1.0 mask 255.255.255.0

aggregate-address 1.1.1.0 255.255.255.0 as-set summary-only

Re: BGP Question

Yes, you still need the static route because the route needs to be brought into BGP so it can be aggregated and in order to bring the route into BGP, it must exist in the RIB.
