I am having a real difficult time trying to capture a BGP notification packet. I can force a BGP notification using a basic ACL, and can see on the debug output that the notification is being sent, but I dont see a BGP type message. Could it be the notification message is just TCP with a RST bit set or something? But I would assume not as it would have to contain the BGP error code. Would anyone have a decode of this Type3 packet for me?
Output of debug:-
6d11h: BGP: Applying map to find origin for 10.0.0.0/8
I guess the BGP notification will be sent only by one device and received by the other and then the connection gets closed. Since your debug output shows that this device is receiving notification, look at the debugs on the device which is sending this message to see if this is being displayed. I am not sure about the packet format but you can always use some freeware sniffing software and see the packet contents. You could try the one at http://www.ethereal.com
