Re: "Bad bgp identifier"
Unicast currently ends at 126.96.36.199. 188.8.131.52/4 is multicast and I believe that 240.0.0.0/5 248.0.0.0/6 252.0.0.0/6 are listed as reserved for experimental purposes. Owen --On March 31, 2006 5:06:54 AM -0500 Joe Maimon <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote:
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? Thanks, Joe
