I’m pleased to hear the updated implementation is published on:


We’ll start the WG LC this evening.  

This delay is to allow you to answer the following questions on the FRR implementation. 


1) Do you have configuration syntax for your open policy?


I could not readily tell where you put the configuration for open policy. 

It seems like it would be in the peer section. 

Perhaps you could provide a link to the appropriate configuration section 


2)Could you please fill out the implementation report 

 (on the IDR Wiki for FRR for open-policy)?


If you do not have time to fill out the wiki, could you 

Please send me the implementation information listed below. 


Without 2 implementations, the draft-ietf-idr-bgp-open-policy 

will not be forwarded to the IESG.  At this time we only have FRR

as an officially mentioned implementation.  


Cheerily, Sue  


Implementation Information


The questions are below 


1)  What Roles do you support in your configuration? 

[see section 1, draft-ietf-idr-bgp-open-policy] 


Provider, customer, RS (Route Server), RS-Client, Peer? 


2) Do you support the following: 

[see section 4, 5 of draft-ietf-idr-bgp-open-policy] 


a) sending (XMT) of BGP Open  with a BGP Role capability  

b) receiving a BGP Open with a BGP Role Capability

c) reject Open with Role Mismatch + 

    connection Rejection notification [Code 6, subcode 5]  

d) receive and process a rejected open 

   with Role Mismatch + connection rejection notification 

e) in strict mode configuration, 

      reject connection that does not have BGP Role 

     with  a) Connection rejection notification [code 6, subcode 5]  


f) receive a connection rejection notification [code 6, subcode 5] 

   without Role mismatch


3)  BGP Path Attribute – BGP Only to Customer 


a) sending transitive BGP Path Attribute – BGP Only to Customer  

b) receiving transitive BGP Path Attribute – BGP Only to Customer  



4) Have you tested this with another implementation? 

If so which one? 


5) Have you any concerns about the error handling? 


Cheerily, Susan Hares

The promised updated implementation on frr can be found at

Dear chairs, can you advise when the WGLC will be announced?
