Having a strange issue can't seem to figure out what's happening. I got 2 routers running BGP. Router A is advertising subnet and Router B is advertising Routing is working fine from the internet and I can access both subnets from any location in the world. Both routers share the same AS number though. The problem I am facing is that when I try to see BGP route for any of the subnets from router B, I can't seem to find any route.

SSH@YLINX-CORE-2024C-4X-TX#sh ip bgp routes BGP4 : None of the BGP4 routes match the display condition

While strange enough If I try to see subnets for router A on router B it should be the BGP route.

SSH@YLINX-CORE-2024C-4X-NY#sh ip bgp route Number of BGP Routes matching display condition : 1 Status A:AGGREGATE B:BEST b:NOT-INSTALLED-BEST C:CONFED_EBGP D:DAMPED E:EBGP H:HISTORY I:IBGP L:LOCAL M:MULTIPATH m:NOT-INSTALLED-MULTIPATH S:SUPPRESSED F:FILTERED s:STALE x:BEST-EXTERNAL Prefix Next Hop MED LocPrf Weight Status 1 0 100 0 BEx AS_PATH: 4459 Last update to IP routing table: 1h0m25s, 1 path(s) installed: Route is not advertised to any peers

Can't seem to figure out what is the problem. Any pointers would be helpful.

    By default most router will not accept a route received with is own AS number as originator from an eBGP peer. Check if you can add a command to tell the router to accept his local-AS.

Most routers by default don't accept a route from an eBGP peer where the originator is their own AS number.

You need to configure the router to accept it's local AS, then the route will be installed in the forwarding table.

I don't know the specific command for a brocade router, it is usually something along allowas-in.
