BGP awesomeness with Packet Tracer 5.3.2

With Packet Tracer 5.3.2 you can experiment with BGP (eBGP)

It serves as a good tool for a refresher, especially for poor chap like without exclusive access to the cisco racks....

Here I demo Cross AS BGP. Not all the BGP peers have a direct peering. I use the "network" command to do the routing.

Common mistakes that might occur
1. Peering with BGP peer on the wrong AS
2. Peering with BGP peer on the wrong IP subnet
3. Configure wrong AS for BGP on the victim router
4. and the list go on....

to verify your settings...
sh ip bgp

sh ip bgp neigh

come code for your reference.....
