Simple Matter of Programming :wink:

Please suggest to said vendors that they implement this -- IMO it's
the right way to do it...

Rest assured that I did so during the debrief on our evaluation. I know
one promised a fix quickly. I don't recall on the other as that problem
was not very significant compared to other issues with that unit.

These evals are so much fun. I had to listen to a sales type explain
that mBGP was incomplete for MY benefit. It might confuse me to be able
to run multiple address families over a single peering session. I am so
touched for this sort of concern.
