* We're rolling out new Bird BGP route-servers globally to replace our Quagga ones, please bear with us while this rollout occurs for other locations. Historical Quagga route-servers will continue to operate until further notice. Please contact support if you would like to migrate.


Cloud Customers Next-Hop
Please specify 110.232.119.254 as your next-hop if you do not have any physical routers with us. Do not specify your cloud server IP addresses.


BGP Internal Padding
RackCorp maintains some internal padding using private AS65001 to be indicative of BGP router hop distance, and also to handle well-known AS's who are homed in geo-diverse cities. You can strip these out internally if you wish, but our recommendation would be to leave them in place for route calculation for optimal routes.
