Interesting Facts About The Internet:
Telnet to a live Internet core router!
Note: These are not web sites, you are accessing the router via Telnet. The BGP database contains several hundred thousand prefixes, so commands that require sorting may require a little time to process (and you're probably not the only person logged in).
When you get in, try some "show" commands, like the following (remember that when at the "--More--" prompt, hit the "Enter" key to see the next line, the spacebar to see the next screen, and any other key to get back to the command prompt):
- show ip route (the full output of this is over 400,000 lines)
- show ip route address mask
- show ip route summary
- show ip bgp summary
- show ip bgp (the full output of this is over 7 *million* lines!)
- show ip bgp address mask
- show ip bgp regexp regexp
- Frame Relay:
- Other Data-Link Layer info:
IP Network Layer Protocols:
