"Bad bgp identifier"

  • From: Joe Maimon
  • Date: Fri Mar 31 05:08:15 2006

4271 specifies that bgp identifier must be a valid unicast ip address

So what is the larget 32 bit value expressed as a dotted quad that meets this requirement?

Is it the last address in class c? class e? Can 255.x.x.x be used?

Do all vendors implement this?

I understand that draft-ietf-idr-bgp-identifier-06.txt does away with the above requirements. Is this something I should ask vendors if they will support it?
