Riddle me this BGP man...
One of the common questions that comes up is "Why does the router choose THAT route?
We all know, (or at least after reading the list below, we will know), that BGP uses the following order, to determine the "best" path.
So now for the question. Take a look at the partial output of the show command below:
Regarding the 126.96.36.199/24 network, why did this router select the 192.168.68.8 next hop route, over the one just below it?
Post your ideas, and we will have a drawing next week, before the BGP class begins. We'll give 1 lucky winner some rack tokens for our preferred rack vendor, Graded Labs. Everyone who comments, will be entered into the drawing. I will update the post with the lucky winner.
Thanks for your ideas, and happy learning.
Thank you to all who responded. eBGP is preferred over iBGP, and that is what it came down to.
The winner of the graded labs tokens is Jon! Congratulations.
