Re: AS-701 multihop BGP peering session?

AS701 has a published policy of never initiating BGP
sessions with multihop > 2.  

I'd be very surprised if you're able to get them to
change it for you: once you're in the multihop world,
security and load issues become more complex, and
large networks don't particularly want to deal with
those headaches if they can help it.  Maybe you could
offer to pay them more per hop?  ;)

We recently migrated our IP connectivity to
UU-Net/MCI/whatever you
want to call them these days.  I've migrated the
majority of our
BGP topology collection feeds to the new IP space
(anyone want to give
us your routes?) and decided that now we're a
UU-Net customer, I'd
try to get a feed from UU-Net.

Apparently they only want to feed our border
router, not the
route collection host.

If anyone has any suggestions on who to deal with
at UU-Net that might
have a little more clue on this type of situation,
it would be appreciated.

      I don't believe that AS701 does it.  I seem to
recall this from
hearing about some very complicated process that had
to be completed
for route-views.oregon-ix.net to get their AS701

      This may no longer be the case but seeings as the
feed isn't
there anymore, i'm guessing they still don't do

      Make your cpe router speak bgp with them, then have
that peer
with your collector.
