Hi, really struggling to work out these terms and how they build a way for advertising a prefix out using Juniper devices
Cisco appears to be straighforward, use the 'network command' - there doesnt appear to be the equivalent in Juniper? Is that correct?
So how does Juniper advertise prefixes? Network prefixes, static route, routes from other protocols (redistributed routes)
Does anyone have any simple breakdown of how and syntax with an explanation of waht/how the terms prefix lists, policy statements, filters interact and build these advertisements? I'm going around in circles and I know there is a simple explanation somewhere?
Network statements with Cisco redistributes specific routes into BGP. To do the same thing with Junos, you need to create a policy that you can use to redistribute specific routes into BGP. Here's a Junos equivalent to the Cisco config you posted:
set policy-options policy-statement EXPORT-BGP term LOOPBACK from route-filter 22.214.171.124/32 exact
set policy-options policy-statement EXPORT-BGP term LOOPBACK then accept
set protocols bgp group eBGP export EXPORT-BGP
