In sh IP BGP neighbor, does the remote router ID have any significance?

Specifically, does this mean that this is the IP Address that you are peering with on the remote router?

Re: In sh IP BGP neighbor, does the remote router ID have any si

The remote router ID is the BGP router ID of the remote peer. The router ID is the highest loopback IP address on the router or if there is no loopback(s) - it is the highest IP address on the router. Similar to the OSPF router ID - the BGP router ID is how every router running BGP is identified. A BGP router ID should never be duplicated anywhere else in your network. The bgp router id can be manually set and can be used by BGP as one of the criteria it uses when determining a best path:
