Re: anycasting behind different ASNs?

Are there any practical issues with announcing the same route behind different ASNs?What is the problem you're trying to solve that you think inconsistent origin AS announcements of the same network would solve which announcements

(This is just my attempted to now have to deal with GRE tunnels between sites that aren't logically connected anyways and using the same ASN).
Yes, understood. But note that different originating AS does not mean traffic you expect to see in one location would not show up in another. The only difference maybe when you're peering with same network from these two locations but then you can provide distinct routing policies using communities. BTW - My suggestion is to consider doing it with 3 ASs, i.e. you have "AS2 AS1" as starting path in location 1 with AS2 being what you use for peering and AS1 being prepended to the routes. At location 2 you do it as "AS3 AS1" with AS3 being used for peering and AS1 prepended. Then to the outside it does not look like you have multiple unconnected locations. But that may not achieve quite the same effect in routing table for anycasting though... --- William Leibzon Elan Networks firstname.lastname@example.org
