How is the router supposed to know what you want to do. BGP4 knows nothing of link speeds, and I hope it never does, the instabilities it could cause are frightening. I don't think the people who came up with BGP4 ever expected to see what some people do with their router configs. Regards, Neil. -- Neil J. McRae. Alive and Kicking.
