VANIX operates a BGP Route Server available to all members.
- ASN: 64234
- RS1 IPv4: 188.8.131.52
- 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.
