Title : Controlling the redistribution of BGP routes
Author(s) : O. Bonaventure et al.
Filename : draft-ietf-ptomaine-bgp-redistribution-02.txt
Pages : 16
Date : 2003-2-19
This document proposes the redistribution extended community. This
new extended community allows a router to influence how a specific
route should be redistributed towards a specified set of eBGP
speakers. Several types of redistribution communities are proposed.
The first type may be used to indicate that a specific route should
not be announced over a specified set of eBGP sessions. The second
type may be used to indicate that the attached route should only be
announced with the NO_EXPORT community over the specified set of eBGP
sessions and the third type may be used to indicate that the attached
route should be prepended n times when announced over a specified set
of eBGP sessions.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
