Re: Search routing table by subnet mask

OK well.. it wasn't as straight forward as: sh ip bgp | i /25 in ROS its gotta be a regex.. ip route pr where dst-address~"^[0-9 \\.]*/25" rinse and repeat for other prefixes... and wait for the CCR to go through all 1.6Million routes. This seems too resource intensive -- can we get grep already?!

It sounds like something (ISP) is filtering ICMP on those hops, or like road racer indicated the subnet between you and the ISP isn't announced, which, is independent from your announcement.
