Use the new access-list with a match command in the route- map. Answer these questions: Q1) What do you need in order to propagate classful networks? Q2) What do you need in order to propagate classless networks (supernets or subnets)? Q3) Why do some networks that are received from router Good have a next-hop address pointing to other routers? Q4) What command would you use to see whether a neighbor is sending you any updates and how many? Task 2: Configuring Route Redistribution in BGP Your network has grown. You will also use route-maps to set the origin of BGP routes to “IGP” instead of “incomplete. In this task.0/24 and 192.

Job Aids
These job aids are available to help you complete the lab activity.
„ Currently, you are using the service provider Cheap as your primary provider for Internet
connectivity and the service provider Good as your backup provider. As a result of this
policy, the link toward the Good service provider is underused, while the link toward the
provider Cheap is overloaded.
„ An analysis of the Internet structure beyond your service providers indicates that you can
improve the link use if you send traffic toward AS 213 and AS 37 directly to the Good
service provider.
„ In this activity, you will improve the simple routing policy that you created in the lab
activity “Using Multihomed BGP Networks” by specifying BGP weights with route-maps.
„ You must implement the following routing policy:
— Prefer routes announced from router Cheap over those announced from router Good.
— Prefer routes going through or originating in AS 213 or AS 37 from router Good.

Task 1: Influencing BGP Route Selection with Weights
In this activity, you will configure BGP to influence route selection by using the weight
attribute in a situation where you must support connections to multiple ISPs.

Activity Procedure
Complete these steps:

Configuring AS-path access-lists:
Step 1 Create an AS-path access-list that permits either AS number 213 or 37 in the AS
path (one is sufficient).

Setting per-neighbor default weights:
Step 2 (Optional) Set default weights for both neighboring routers. For example, use 100
for Good and 200 for Cheap as weights.

Step 3 Inspect your BGP table to verify that you prefer routes coming from Cheap to routes
coming from Good.

Using AS-path filters within route-maps to set weights:

Step 4 Create a new route-map. Use the previously configured AS-path access-list as the
match condition in one of the route-map statements, and set the weight of matched
routes as needed. Remember that routes matching this AS-path access-list from
Good should give the highest weight; therefore, you might use 300 for the weight.
Step 5 Apply the route-map to incoming updates from router Good.

Activity Verification
You have completed this activity when you attain these results:
„ You can verify your BGP table to see that all prefixes with two paths prefer the one
through router Cheap. Your display should resemble the following output.

Yes, they are still reachable.

Q2) Why does router WGxR1 still accept class B networks from router Cheap?

Only subnets of class B networks are filtered, not the class B networks themselves.

Lab 4-1 Answer Key: Influencing BGP Route Selection with
Weights
When you complete this activity, your router configuration will be similar to the following,
with differences that are specific to your device or workgroup.

Use the following command sequence on your router WGxR1 (replace x with your
workgroup number):
WGxR1(config)#ip as-path access-list 10 permit _37_|_213_
WGxR1(config)#route-map SetWeight permit 10
WGxR1(config-route-map)#match as-path 10
WGxR1(config-route-map)#set weight 300
WGxR1(config-route-map)#exit

Answers to Review Questions
Q1) Did all paths automatically get a weight of 100 or 200? Why not? What did you have to
do?

The BGP sessions had to be reset in order to apply newly configured weights to
incoming BGP routes.

Q2) Name some parameters and attributes that are used for best-path selection.

The following BGP parameters and attributes are used for BGP best-path selection in
the order specified: weight, local preference, AS-path length, origin code, MED.
