Trying to wrap my head around eBPG config as it is new to me. I've been through the practice lab provided a couple of times now and something still isn't clear.
The commands to configure the lab are as follows...
router bgp 65534
network 220.127.116.11 mask 255.255.255.192
neighbor 18.104.22.168 remote-as 64000
neighbor 22.214.171.124 local-as 32000
neighbor 126.96.36.199 prefix-list OUT out
The prefix-list commands excluded..
Can someone explain to be why there are three AS numbers listed? 65534, 64000, and 32000 ? I get that 64000 is the AS of the remote device you want to peer with, but why the 65534 and 32000 AS numbers for the local device?
Toward the end of the lab they mention what the routing table would look like of the device peer at IP 188.8.131.52....
