Please make sure you only announce what you own and what your downstream have ask you to announce. If your network policy permits you should not filter any prefixes from CNX and you should prioritize traffic routes using CNX – remember whatever goes through this port is free traffic for your network and the fastest route for your customer. If you have downstream peers also peering at CNX you may want to filter those routes as to not conflict with your business routes.
Please read our documentation on route and ASN filtering to make sure our RS will accept your advertised routes
IPv4 peering Cisco
Example Cisco configuration for peering with CNX Route Server, replace 10.1.0.0/16 with your prefix delegation.
Note that for IOS versions after 12.2 you have to specify “no bgp enforce-first-as” (IOS, IOS-XE) as the route server does not insert its own ASN into the AS_path of relayed prefix announcements.
! Step 1 setup your IP filter for announcement to CNX ip prefix-list TO-CNX-RS4 seq 10 permit 10.1.0.0/16 le 24 ! Step 2 add route-maps to control announcement route-map bgp-cnx-rs4-out permit 10 match ip address prefix-list TO-CNX-RS4 ! Step 3 set higher local preference for CNX routes because IT'S FREE ! Step 4 DO NOT filter, because ? its free route-map bgp-cnx-rs4-in permit 10 set local-preference 300 ! Step 5 setup BGP router bgp your-asn bgp always-compare-med no bgp enforce-first-as bgp log-neighbor-changes neighbor CNX-RS4 peer-group neighbor CNX-RS4 remote-as 132213 neighbor CNX-RS4 version 4 neighbor CNX-RS4 transport connection-mode active neighbor 18.104.22.168 peer-group CNX-RS4 neighbor 22.214.171.124 peer-group CNX-RS4 ! address-family ipv4 network 10.1.0.0/16 neighbor CNX-RS4 next-hop-self neighbor CNX-RS4 route-map bgp-cnx-rs4-in in neighbor CNX-RS4 route-map bgp-cnx-rs4-out out ! step 3 neighbor 126.96.36.199 activate neighbor 188.8.131.52 activate exit-address-family
IPv4 peering Huawei
Example Huawei configuration for peering with CNX Route Server, replace 10.1.0.0/16 with your prefix delegation.

please note the configuration has not been tested by CNX because we do not have a Huawei test router, it is build based on internet examples and feedback from peers.
IPv6 peering Cisco
Example Cisco configuration for peering with CNX Route Server, replace 2001:DB8:10::/48 with your prefix delegation.
