Route Server Info

VANIX operates a BGP Route Server available to all members.

Details

  • ASN: 64234
  • RS1 IPv4: 206.41.104.254
  • RS1 IPv6: 2001:504:39::254

All members have their BGP sessions pre-configured on the Route Server as passive.

The following BGP communities are available:

  • 0:AS Route Server does not advertise route to peer AS
  • 64234:AS Route Server advertises received route to peer AS only
  • 0:64234 Route Server does not advertise received route to any peer

Please note that peering with the route server, while recommended, is completely optional.

Note: the route server does not add its AS into the path. Members using Cisco routers might need to add “no bgp enforce-first-as ” to their BGP neighbor configuration.
