BGP (Border gateway Protocol) is a routing protocol, which shares
the information of its routing table on incremental basis.
BGP needs to interact with the IGP peers within the autonomous
system when all the routers inside the autonomous system do not run
BGP. This document provides a detailed implementation of
synchronization in BGP.
This document specifies some implementation specifics of
synchronization and also throws some of the pros and cons involved
in implementing synchronization. This also reveals the points to be
taken care when transition happens from synchronization to No
synchronization and vice versa. Some of the precautions that are to
be taken before implementing synchronization in BGP are also

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.

implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
