What is the impact of not selecting 'Exact' when entering prefixes in the import or export tab in BGP configuration? I assume the exact must match the prefix entered.

But if exact is not selected, what is permitted through? If 10.0.0.0/8 is the entered prefix and exact is not selected, is this saying 10.0.0.0/8 le 32, basically any prefix in the 10. space?

Thanks

Hello Sir,

The "Exact" will import/export the exact configured prefix and if you not selected the "Exact" option, it should take that configured prefix or a longer match prefix.

As per your description, if exact is not selected, and 10.0.0.0/8 is the entered prefix, it will accept  prefix 10.0.0.0/8 to /32, basically any prefix in the 10. space.

Thanks
