As mentioned in both  and  this is especially critical as at
present Cisco IOS will tear down sessions when receiving an AS4_PATH
containing an AS_CONFED_SET/SEQUENCE.
Whilst this is behaviour is RFC compliant, as previously described, it is
sub-optimal operationally. I have raised this issue with Cisco TAC, and
CSCsx10140 has been opened to track this problem.
I would encourage those network operators who may be planning to deploy
AS4-support and use Cisco equipment to open a SR with Cisco, tracking this bug,
to try to ensure that both the IOS behaviour, and RFC are changed.
