Export BGP Routes to other Protocols

Before exporting routes from BGP to another protocol, you must first configure both protocols and then verify the independent operation of each. When you export routes from BGP, the exported routes are limited to those for the respective address family and protocol. For example, you can export IPv4 unicast routes from BGP to RIP, but you cannot export IPv6 unicast routes from BGP to RIP. IPv6 routes can be exported only from BGP to IPv6 routing protocols; and IPv4 routes can be exported only to IPv4 routing protocols.

You can use route maps to associate BGP attributes including Community, NextHop, MED, Origin, and Local Preference with the routes. Route maps can also be used to filter out exported routes.
