Re: BGP community based IP filtering
You're absolutely correct. The current protocol requires no modification, it's just relevant to the way the router handles other services. The thrust of my goal, mangled as it was, was that this become fairly common and expected. If so, then one could communicate and act upon routes based upon their associated BGP communities. This, imho, would be a very good thing. -alan > > Bear in mind this is not terribly useful to the world if Cisco > > does it alone, it should be tracked through IETF, but it would be > > nice if Cisco did the proof-of-concept and led the pack. > > But isn't what you described implementation details?
