Is it possible to set up a custom dest port for a neighbor? I noticed we can set up a custom listening address and port via env, and I'd like to connect to it w/ another exa instance.

Ah, I see it isn't in the config, but command line. I was looking in the .conf files. Thank you.

It may be a good candidate to move into the config, as it's a neighbor property, less about the daemon.
for TX, listening totally makes sense as command line env.
whoa, for listening*

P.s. thank you for opening this project up, it makes managing BGP much more reasonable.

Yes - it should feel free to add a feature request - I believe it may already be there in master but I can not recall and can not check right now
