BGP Advertising problem

Small ISP peering with upstream (ATT) and a customer to act as redundant link for that customer. I am getting routes from customer and I am advertising them to AT&T. AT&T tech says their side shows a problem with the route map but can provide no other details. They are set to accept the subnet as well as my other subnets and receive my other subnets just fine. I've been over it and over it, hopefully it's something obvious...

The 65.x.x.0 network is the one in question. The other subnets are on my network. I have routes for all of mine, but no "ip route" statements for the 65.x.x.0 as it is acquired by BGP.

Re: BGP Advertising problem

1-ip prefix-list Cust seq 5 permit 65.x.x.0/24 ==> u accept prefix from customer.

2-network 65.x.x.0 mask 255.255.255.0 ==>u advertsie prefix via BGP.

3-route-map bellout permit 10

match ip address 1 ==> u control advertisement by route map.

all looks fine so far. so the only only thing I can think off is, do u have 65.x.x.x/24 installed in your routing table ( not BGP table).

unless it is there, it wont be advertised.

show ip bgp 65.x.x.x would show more info.

also, sh ip bgp neighbor x.x.x.x advertise-prefixes will show what is being sent out.

Re: BGP Advertising problem

Samir,

All good points, except that the network statement is not required for 65.x.x.0/24 as it is received via BGP from customer.

Re: BGP Advertising problem

Sam,

It shouldn't cause any issue as such. Just pointing out the fact that it is not necessary in this specific scenario.

Re: BGP Advertising problem

OK, I've taken out the network line and verified ip route and what I'm advertising and they all look right. AT&T still not seeing the 65.x.x.0 network. What about a "redistribute" command?

Re: BGP Advertising problem

Hello,

it looks like that ATT is only accepting IP prefixes with AS path = Your ASN only.

The customer prefix 65.x.x.0/24 should be seen by ATT with an AS path attribute of = 'YourASN CustomerASN'

So if ATT has a policy that accepts only an AS path made of ^YourASN$ it is filtering the 65.x.x.0/24 IP prefix.

Ask them to verify their incoming policy and to update it if necessary.

Another possible reason could be an unknown BGP next hop verify what is the BGP next hop for prefix 65.x.x.0/24 when advertising to ATT.

Hope to help

Best regards

Re: BGP Advertising problem

ATT was not accepting the redist - they have fixed. Thanks everyone...
