For example, neighbor x.x.x.x ebgp-multihop 255 - 255 is generally much higher than needed, but is there any risk/danger ?? Thanks in advance. - Tim If you use this for a regular BGP feed (one where you actually send traffic as per the routes received) you can get interesting results if your direct connection to the peer goes down. Your BGP session will probably survive this and simply continue to run over any other connection(s) to the net you have. You can of course make sure this doesn't happen by creative application of static routes with different administrative distances (or even a filter).
