    Not being able to ping or traceroute does not mean the router won’t forward packets.

The selected path is chosen because (all else being equal) the local preference (190) is set highest on this path. To change which path BGP selects you will need to modify the local preference.

  • how to modify the local preference?

    We will need a diagram of your network, along with the device configurations. The local preference was configured to be what it is. Before you change it, you need to know the reason behind it.
