How to Peer with Route Servers

Route servers do propagate prefixes from one peer to all their other peers. At least, that's how route servers typically operate today.
In figure 1, the networks do not peer directly, but all maintain BGP sessions with AS 25, the route server. Note that each AS has allprefixes, and the AS path is a hop longer because AS 25 appears in it.

Figure 1: BGP sessions towards a route server:

Under normal circumstances, the traffic would now flow through the route server, making running a route server on a big internet exchange a non-starter. However, BGP is smart enough to recognize that all the route server peers are connected to the same subnet (the internet exchange peering LAN). So unlike it does under other circumstances, BGP doesn't update the next hop address. This means that when AS 456 gets the route to from the route server, the next hop address isn't the route server's address, but the AS 123 router's address. As such, packets don't flow through the route server, but rather, are directly delivered to the right AS, as shown in figure 2.

Figure 2: Traffic flow when peering with a route server:

However, there are also some networks that have an open peering policy and will peer directly with anyone, but don't peer with route servers, because that way they don't control their peerings. For instance, when there is an issue with a peer, it's useful to be able to temporarily shut down the BGP session with that peer. If the peering happens through a route server, you'll either have to wait for the route server operator to take action or shut down the BGP session towards the route server and impact lots of other peers, too.

Most networks prefer to peer through the route servers exclusively when possible, while other networks like to add direct peering in addition to the route server peering. The argument in favor of a route server only policy is that it keeps the amount of work and the number of BGP sessions to a minimum. On the other hand, adding direct peering has the advantage that if there's an issue with the route server peering, there's still the direct peering.

The BGP session towards a route server is configured exactly the same as any other BGP session used for peering. The route server itself can also be a standard BGP router, or a Unix (-like) system running BGP software. The route server configured to allow prefixes from each peer to propagate to other peers. A regular router performing route server duties will include its own AS in the AS path for prefixes it propagates, as shown in figures 2 and 3. This makes paths learned through the route server a hop longer, so paths learned through direct peering will be preferred. However, it's not uncommon for route servers to be set up to leave out their own AS number in the AS path propagated to peers, so there's no impact to AS path length.

How to make a Peering Request

When a network gets to a certain size, it is worth to start peering. As a rule, no money changes hands in a peering relationship. All over the globe there are Internet Exchanges (IXes) that help people who want to peer connect to each other.

Smaller networks commonly want to peer with everyone, but big networks only want to peer with other big networks. The goal of the peering request is to make it easy for the other party to say "yes" as possible. Key to successful establishment of peering partnership is respectig peering request etiquette.

The first rule to respect when emailing peering requests is using a subject line like this: "Peering request from Me (AS65700) to You (AS64939)". Your message must explain who you are and why peering with you is a good idea. Learn more about peering policy in the article Peering Request Etiquette .

Hi I am going to purchase a Dell Inspiron 10" Netbook with Atom N270. I've been told that these notebooks do not have a cd drive. So how do you install things like printers programmes etc.also I see in the...

External device (cd/dvd device) connected via USB cable is one way to do it ... download over a network (including the internet) is another method, if it has a serial port, this is another avenue you could try if you have the expertise ... peer to peer direct connection to another computer through the NIC is an option.

I hope this helps ...

Thanks for your interest in

Wht does peer to peer mean

A peer is like a workstation which contributes it's resource (hard disk space,speed,Bandwidth etc.) without the need of central coordination (servers).They are both suppliers and consumers of the resources.

In simple words if you have noticed P2P clients like uTorrents,Bittorrents and many other and you want to download a first download the torrent file--run it--and you start downloading it in 'parts'(consumer) from different people who already have downloaded the files and also you will see that you are using some of your bandwidth in uploading too (supplier) which means other people are also downloading from your workstation.You can even stop someone from downloading the file from your end.
This is what peer-to-peer is all about.

Same Problem Again - Mega Raid.... Unknown Error


The title of your post suggests that you have "Maga RAID" errors. Maga RAID messages would be in line with issues on the LSI PERC sub-system.

However, the extract posted in your suggests network problems.

Any number of physical to driver and configuration issues can result in network problems.

Try the basic checks;
1. Change or try a known patch cable
2. Run "ping" test to a known good system connected to same network switch or direct connect with a "cross-over" cable and check for dropped connections.
3. Is the NIC and switch set to Auto-Negotiation or static at 10, 100 or 1000Mbps speed
4. Can you try another switch
5. Check and load correct or latest manufacture's drivers
