Hi Javier

Hi Javier

It means that BGP is trying to establish the TCP three way handshake in order to complete the connection with the neighbor.

Just some questions:

- Was it working properly before?
- Any change was implemented recently?
- Have you implemented any ACL blocking the port TCP 179 on one of these devices?
- Is this an eBGP or iBGP connection?

Could you please share the BGP configuration of these peers?

Thank you

hi Julio

hi Julio

Thanks for the reply.

-The session was established before but suddenly it is stopped.

-no change done on my side

-no ACL implemented blocking port 179

-it is an eBGP connection

find BGP configurations of peer

neighbor IP ADD remote-as XXXX
neighbor IP ADD peer-group ixp-peers
neighbor IP ADD description YYYYY

Thank you!!!

Janvier R.

Thank you

Are you using the directly connected subnet to create the eBGP peering?
