when i was just getting started with bgp next-hop-self gave me a friggin headache. next-hop-who, myself, hisself, next-hop-whoself?
note the asterisk for the 3 network. it’s valid but that dog don’t hunt. the next hop field is vital; from r2’s perspective, to get to r3’s 3 network it will have to bypass r1 completely and mysteriously find 184.108.40.206 to get to 220.127.116.11. it’s r1’s job to make it right. r1 IS THE next hop for r2 to get to r3.
R1(config-router)#neighbor 18.104.22.168 next-hop-self
R1(config-router)#!!! to get to 22.214.171.124, use me, abuse me!!!
R2(config-router)#do ping 126.96.36.199
Type escape sequence to abort.
Sending 5, 100-byte ICMP Echos to 188.8.131.52, timeout is 2 seconds:
Success rate is 100 percent (5/5), round-trip min/avg/max = 16/30/44 ms
i still don’t like next-hop-self…
