    If the soft option is not used, brings down the underlying TCP connection and then brings it back up again, causing both peers to resend their complete BGP routing table. If the soft out option is used, the BGP speaker reapplies outbound policy and resends all routes to the specified peers. If the soft in option is used, the BGP speaker reapplies inbound policy to the routes received from the specified peers. This is possible only if soft reconfiguration inbound has been enabled for the peer or the peer supports the route-refresh capability. There is no no version.
