Re: AS701 peer local-pref?
they could just be relying on as_path+bgp bestpath but yeah, i personally prefer a model of localprefs in this order (highest first obviously) customer peer upstream this puts traffic across links that you get paid for, you get for (free?) a lower cost than upstream/transit then the most expensive link. - jared On Sun, Dec 16, 2001 at 01:07:39AM -0800, Mike Leber wrote: > If they set local pref for both peers and customers to 100 how do they > ensure that the customer transit routes are announced to peers? > > The reason I ask this is because if a customer announces a customer of > theirs to you that a peer also has as a customer you will have equal > length routes for the same destination AS.
