Yesterday we learned the basics of BGP including property, message types, states,role of igp into bgp and Rathod sir explained how messages are involved with states of bgp.
I left the class after half session because of office work 😞 and could not attend the remaining last 45 minuets.
But one thing is best and will be always best that our Trainer Jagdish Sir is always in positive mode and clear our doubt positively.
