Comment: They have removed all the BGP advertisements

(See in situ)


They have removed all the BGP advertisements

from the routers providing the networks to the downstream Syrian ISPs.

Here is a list of Syrian IP networks:

http://www.nirsoft.net/countryip/sy.html

If you telnet to route-server.ip.att.net , login with username rviews and password rviews you can check to see no routes exist to Syria.

At this rviews@route-server.ip.att.net> prompt type...

show route protocol bgp 37.48.128.0

you will get zero routes returned, to validate that output type at the same prompt...

show route protocol bgp 4.2.2.2

and it will display the network and BGP advertisements learned by the ATT router to get to that address.
