AS numbers dentify the network - they are most commonly used with BGP, but are also applicable to(E)IGRP.
An AS number is needed when using BGP or (E)IGRP
As for you needing one, it depends! there areother ways - a simple static route may be enough to get things working.
You will need an AS Number to participate in the routing protocols that use them, but AS for (E)IGRP are normally locally allcated, and for BGP there are ways to do it withut needing to go the whole hog.
Midle ISP have core router but dont have ASN they only running static route. can this middle router route customer ASN to ASN_upstream without having ASN? middle ISP only act as a middle man. can this be done if my customer insist to have their ASN talk to provider ASN.
EBGP multihop will allow you to run the configuration above. You will still need to have the IP range routed to the customer statically or with some other IGP (or MIDDLE_ISP won't know how to route the packets through to the customer).
In addition, the loopback or other addresses used to originate the BGP sessions will need to be reachable from either side.
do you mean even do middle_isp dont have ASN it still able to talk to 2 different AS Cloud with nly eBGP? Please, I need some sample configuration and a network diagram to make my understand better. i hope you can provide me with the sample confg.
Since MIDDLE_ISP have direct connection to cust_rtr(ASN) and (ASN)Ups_routr, try building IP/GRE Tunnel between cust_rtr(ASN) and (ASN)Ups_routr over MIDDLE_ISP and run BGP on it. Remain static route between cust_rtr(ASN) and MIDDLE_ISP, MIDDLE_ISP and (ASN)Ups_routr. Anyway, MIDDLE_ISP will always be a middle man between cust_rtr(ASN) and (ASN)Ups_routr :)
