Command:

neighbor ebgp-multihop


Mode:

Router(config-router)#

Syntax:

neighbor {ip-address | peer-group-name} ebgp-multihop [ttl]

no neighbor {ip-address | peer-group-name} ebgp-multihop [ttl] 


Syntax Description:

ip-address

IP address of the BGP-speaking neighbor

peer-group-name

Name of a BGP peer group

ttl

(Optional) Time-to-live in the range 1 to 255 hops

 

Command Description:

To accept and attempt BGP connections to external peers residing on networks that are not directly connected, use the neighbor ebgp-multihop router configuration command. To return to the default (allow peering with only directly connected neighbors), use the no form of this command. 

Usage Guidelines:

If you specify a BGP peer group by using the peer-group-name argument, all the members of the peer group will inherit the characteristic configured with this command. To prevent the creation of loops through oscillating routes, the multihop will not be established if the only route to the multihop peer is the default route (0.0.0.0).


Example:

The following example allows connections to or from neighbor 131.108.1.1, which resides on a network that is not directly connected:

Router(config)#router bgp 109 
Router(config-router)#neighbor 131.108.1.1 ebgp-multihop

Misconceptions:
None
