R1 and R2 are iBGP R3 and R4 are iBGP R1 - R3 eBGP R2 - R4 eBGP
I want R1 to direct the traffic for R2 to go through R3, R4 then to R2 and then back the same way in reverse.
I have tried manipulating LOCAL_PREFERENCE on R3/R4 but when I check the
ip bgp there is still only one route to R2.
All routers are
next-hop-self to their iBGP neighbor.
show ip bgp 10.2.0.0
Output for R1 is
Local 126.96.36.199 from 188.8.131.52 Origin IGP, localpref 100, valid, internal, best
Output on R3 with the inclusion of locpref is:
184.108.40.206 from 220.127.116.11 Origin IGP, localpref 200, valid, internal, best
