I have this rather basic setup with 3 routers running BGP, each has Loopback int configured. Is there an extra step required for R2 to ping R4 Loopback interface despite it's being advertised?

enter image description here

R2#sh run | s bgp
router bgp 65001
 bgp log-neighbor-changes
 neighbor 11.0.0.1 remote-as 65001
 neighbor 22.0.0.2 remote-as 65002
 !
 address-family ipv4
  network 172.17.0.1 mask 255.255.255.255
  neighbor 11.0.0.1 activate
  neighbor 22.0.0.2 activate
 exit-address-family

R3#sh run | s bgp
router bgp 65002
 bgp log-neighbor-changes
 neighbor 22.0.0.1 remote-as 65001
 neighbor 33.0.0.2 remote-as 65002
 !
 address-family ipv4
  neighbor 22.0.0.1 activate
  neighbor 33.0.0.2 activate
 exit-address-family

R4#sh run | s bgp
router bgp 65002
 bgp log-neighbor-changes
 neighbor 33.0.0.1 remote-as 65002
 !
 address-family ipv4
  network 172.19.0.1 mask 255.255.255.255
  neighbor 33.0.0.1 activate
 exit-address-family

  • Can you post full sanitized configs for all of the routers?

    You are not advertising any networks in BGP.

    @JesseP., there are no network statements or redistribution commands under BGP to actually advertise any networks.

    thanks for pointing me in the right direction, I have added network 22.0.0.0 mask 255.255.255.252 network 33.0.0.0 mask 255.255.255.252 on R3 and I'm able to ping remote nets, thanks

    @imperato As a side note, you really shouldn't be using public addresses for your internal BGP peerings because now you e effectively blackholed traffic to whoever those blocks belong to, should you ever need to access them publicly.
