I spoke to a sprint salesperson about 2 weeks ago and was told that I
could not get any kind of BGP4 peering with Sprint unless I had a
Cisco 7000 series router.
As Hank commented eqarlier, I think you've got a salesperson feeding
misinformation. I've personally configured and successfully had a full BGP
routing session between a cisco 7000 and a Bay Networks router. Would you
care for numbered or unnumbered BGP4 with that?
