Re: eBGP, iBGP, injecting networks

Well, you sort of can with confederations (internally) but the external
view is still the single advertised ASN.

Note - I got confused by the subject and everything myself. The routes you
have locally would not be from IBGP but just directly through IGP (i.e.
OSPF or EIGRP etc). I don't think you can really do IBGP if routers are
not configured with the same ASN.
