What is the purpose of having just the: address family ip4 command configured in BGP. What is the real world purpose of it? I know it is off by default but what do I gain from having it configured.
I am confused by Cisco's websites explanation of it that it enables routing session such as BGP to use standard IP version 4 address prefixes. What are standard IP version 4 address prefixes. I thought BGP by default routes IP 4
I am confused by this.
The router that I inherited configuration looks like this.
Router Bgp 208 address-family ip4
Thank You for any responses
