Tp3, redistribute...


We have a little hesitation. If we understood correctly, the command "redistribute connected" will only tell the neighboring bgp routers about the on-link subnets of a given router. i.e. R4 will only tell R2 about the subnet going towards R6 but not anything it learned from R6. (It is at least what we seamed to experiment). Is this correct?

If so, how can we make routers forward information they received avoiding the use of the "network" command which would require a router to know exactly in advance what he will be advertised?

Thanks for your help,

Group A19.

what you describe is what specifically that command enables, but in order to enable forwarding of advertisements learned from other routers, you don't have to use any specific command. As far as we know (and experimented) the only thing you have to do is to declare your neighbors.
