Route reflector cluster and peering

Routing TCP/IP Volume II states (page 126)

A client router in a route reflection cluster CAN peer with external neighbors . . .

on page 130

Although clients CANNOT peer with routers outside of their own cluster . . .

Could someone clear up this story (they can or they cannot)????

Thanks

Re: Route reflector cluster and peering

A Client needs to peer only with the route-reflector in case of IBGP. That doesnt mean that it cannot peer with EBGP peers. Client of a route-reflector cluster can peer with EBGP neighbors. Non clients will get the EBGP routes via the Route reflector.
