Dell Command Line Reference Guide for the S4048–ON System


BGP IPv4 Commands

Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) is an external gateway protocol that transmits interdomain routing information within and between Autonomous Systems (AS). BGP supports classless interdomain routing (CIDR) and the aggregation of routes and AS paths. Basically, two routers (called neighbors or peers) exchange information including full routing tables and periodically send messages to update those routing tables.

NOTE: Dell EMC Networking OS supports 2-byte (16-bit) and 4-byte (32-bit) format for autonomous system numbers (ASNs), where the 2-byte format is 1 to 65535 and the 4-byte format is 1 to 4294967295.
NOTE: Dell EMC Networking OS supports dotted format as well as the traditional plain format for AS numbers. The dot format is displayed when using the show ip bgp commands. To determine the comparable dot format for an ASN from a traditional format, use ASN/65536. ASN%65536. For more information about using the 2– or 4-byte format, refer to the Dell EMC Networking OS Configuration Guide.
