Except from AS prepend, what are the other ways to influence the incoming traffic for BGP?

Thanks you.

Re: BGP incoming traffic

it depends of the scenari of you network, if you are talkin in the same ASN, you can use Local-Pre , if there is a different ASN you could use MED , but remember...the only attributre that you cannot modify is the As-PATH..

Re: BGP incoming traffic

Also check into BGP weight: From CCO

Weight is a Cisco-defined attribute that is local to a router. The weight attribute is not advertised to neighboring routers. If the router learns about more than one route to the same destination, the route with the highest weight will be preferred. In Figure 39-2, Router A is receiving an advertisement for network 172.16.1.0 from routers B and C. When Router A receives the advertisement from Router B, the associated weight is set to 50. When Router A receives the advertisement from Router C, the associated weight is set to 100. Both paths for network 172.16.1.0 will be in the BGP routing table, with their respective weights. The route with the highest weight will be installed in the IP routing table.
