@thomas-mangin heya
can exabgp be configured that it will accept a BGP session from any AS, any IP, and announce a route to them?
i was thinking to set up a public 'large community' BGP speaker

@job sure
People had success up to 2k peers
but I would not advise it :p
the code is co-operative multitasking between peers

sorry … I read too fast
Exa-Networks/exabgp#467
The way to code it would be to have a range set as the peer IP and iterate them all to create all the template required, and/or allow multiple IP.
The passive feature is already coded

Sorry - middle of coding for work atm … no much spare time at all (but getting better)
I had to cancel my EPF participation (first time in 11 years) … as I am so behind
