The underlying IP version does not > matter. It should work for both v4 and v6. In that case I have some nice work for this evening ;) I'll build a double Quagga test setup and test between those and then test it using a Cisco on the other end too, if that works I'll upgrade the GRH setup, which should be a good test to see if those peers can work with the patch. After that I think it should be ready for RIS deployment too. Expect some more info after this weekend... Though the RIS boxes have an advantage that there are (afaik) not using multihop BGP's like GRH and thus can be protected largely with ingress filters and the likes on the peering meshes. Another patch I'll add is to be able to 'hide' the local/remote port numbers. Though that is only 2x 65535 tries to get it right and statistically less of course, <1024 not being used etc. Greets, Jeroen -------------- next part -------------- A non-text attachment was scrubbed...
