I have a exceptionally simple setup I'm playing with however I'm banging my head against the wall as to why it's not working.
Right now I have two Vyatta routers (R1, R2) connected locally. Both are connected via a cross connect. I've setup a BGP session between the two - that's working as intended. There is no route-maps / policies in place. I'm simply trying to advertise a single route from R1 to R2 via BGP (I'm not using any IGP yet, merely a static route).
Everything is seemingly working as it's supposed to - R1 and R2 have a BGP session open and R2 see's the routes R1 is attempting to advertise:
vyatta@R2# run show ip bgp neighbors 10.0.50.10 received-routes BGP table version is 5, local router ID is 10.0.60.10 Status codes: s suppressed, d damped, h history, * valid, > best, i - internal Origin codes: i - IGP, e - EGP, ? - incomplete Network Next Hop Metric LocPrf Weight Path *> 10.0.2.0/24 10.0.50.10 0 1 i Total number of prefixes 1
Now the problem is that's just routes it's seeing however it's not actively adding it to the routing table. Running show ip bgp will list nothing as well as show ip bgp neighbor 10.0.50.10 routes. R2 can access the next hop (R1) at 10.0.50.10.
Am I missing something terribly obvious?
