Hierarchy Level


Prevents BGP from advertising flow route updates with real nexthop address even when the route is present in the local routing table. When strip-nexthop is not configured, Junos advertises the real next hop to its neighbors in order to interoperate with devices that have the capability to accept and advertise real BGP nexthops. You can either propagate the received next hop to an EBGP peer in the case of a route reflector or define a policy to advertise self next hop.
