AsianFish inc. is expanding their business towards Europe so they need to expand their network as well. BGP has been configured for inter-AS connectivity but you want to make sure you don’t receive just any prefix on the Internet. Business has been fishy lately so there’s no budget for routers with enough memory to carry all the BGP prefixes. To make sure your routers keep running you only want to accept prefixes from a number of autonomous systems.
- All IP addresses have been preconfigured for you.
- Configure EBGP between AS 1 – 2, AS 2 – 3 and AS 3 – 4.
- Advertise the loopback0 interfaces of all routers in BGP.
- Configure router Tilburg so it only allows prefixes from directly connected autonomous systems.
- You are not allowed to use as path filtering or any regular expressions.
Configuration FilesYou need to register to download the GNS3 topology file. (Registration is free!)
Once you are logged in you will find the configuration files right here.
I assume they want you to the bgp maxas-limit command, if so pretty simply but the same thing can be with an ORF.
Yup that’s the trick. Not a hard lab but it’ll teach you this feature. I’m walking down all the different CCIE R&S commands and this is one of them.
Debug ip bgp update ….Always good to capture debug outputs

Thanks for the awesome lab Rene. U made the life easier to practice BGP labs 🙂
Using a debug like this is excellent to verify your work…your welcome 🙂
man, none of the BGP debugs i did generated a message like the one Farhan showed 🙁
all i got is the following:
%BGP-6-MSGDUMP_LIMIT: unsupported or mal-formatted message received from 192.168.23.2:
FFFF FFFF FFFF FFFF FFFF FFFF FFFF FFFF 0033 0200 0000 1840 0101 0040 020A 0202

debug ip bgp update
clear ip bgp *
you should see this.
