Yeah good point that's is a choice, I am trying to avoid setting up two adjacencies as it will double the number of updates being sent between the neighbors, but its looking like the only option unless anyone's got any other ideas ?..

Hi fellow cisco'ers or cisco'ites , I was wondering if you could help me with a little predicament im in. I have an issue, i am required to create the topology shown below: I have deployed BGP in the most efficient way I could, this involved using static routes to connect the routers to each other and then set bgp to for neighbor ships using loopback addresses on each router, I have managed to get this working effectively thanks to multihop and what not. I am now trying to make one of the two connections prefered over the other. I am finding this difficult as there is only one bgp relationship between these two routers meaning I cannot apply bgp attributes in the usual way (neighbor IP-ADDRESS route-map LOCAL-PREF in ) as it would apply to both connections instead of one. Any advice on how to implement preference in this situation would be helpful, Thanks for your time Router Configs: R1(config)# router bgp 65102 R1(config-router)# neighbor 172.16.1.1 remote-as 65101 R1(config-router)# neighbor 172.16.1.1 update-source loopback0 R1(config-router)# neighbor 172.16.1.1 ebgp-multihop 2 R1(config)# ip route 172.16.1.1 255.255.255.255 192.168.1.18 R1(config)# ip route 172.16.1.1 255.255.255.255 192.168.1.34 R2(config)# router bgp 65101 R2(config-router)# neighbor 172.17.1.1 remote-as 65102 R2(config-router)# neighbor 172.17.1.1 update-source loopback0 R2(config-router)# neighbor 172.17.1.1 ebgp-multihop 2 R2(config)# ip route 172.17.1.1 255.255.255.255 192.168.1.17 R2(config)# ip route 172.17.1.1 255.255.255.255 192.168.1.33
