I have the following config and understand what's happening pretty well with everything except the routes I'm advertising. In other words it's INBOUND traffic I have a question about. What I 'want' to happen is for all traffic to be routed to me through Qwest (AS209), and switch to Sprint (AS1239) ONLY if Qwest goes down.
The 'permit ^$' let's me advertise routes that originate within my AS. So what exactly is THAT route? How am I telling the world to route to me through Qwest?
Here is my config... THANKS!
