configure bgp add network

configure bgp add network {address-family [ipv4-unicast | ipv4-multicast |ipv6-unicast | ipv6-multicast]} ipaddress/masklength {network-policy policy}


Adds a network to be originated from this router.

Syntax Description

address-family Specifies an IPv4 or IPv6 unicast or multicast address family.
ipaddress/masklength Specifies an IP network address and mask length.
policy Name of policy to be associated with network export. Policy can filter and/or change the route parameters.


If no address family is specified, IPv4 unicast is the default.


Usage Guidelines

The network must be present in the routing table.

Using the export command to redistribute routes complements the redistribution of routes using the configure bgp add network command. The configure bgp add network command adds the route to BGP only if the route is present in the routing table. The enable bgp export command redistributes an individual route from the routing table to BGP. If you use both commands to redistribute routes, the routes redistributed using the network command take precedence over routes redistributed using the export command.

If you do not specify an address family, this command applies to the IPv4 unicast address family. To apply this command to an address family other than the IPv4 unicast address family, you must specify the address family.



If the specified address is an IPv4 address, an IPv4 address family must be specified with the command. If the specified address is an IPv6 address, an IPv6 address family must be specified with the command.


The following command adds a network to be originated from this router:
