This task asked for providing routing policy on the PE`s R8 and R7 using Communities tag to influence routing decission towards R9 routes ( the CE ) inside the MPLS cloud .
After the policy has been successfuly applied R10 can reach R9 routes through R8 instead of R7 .
However, R 10 does not retain the new LOCAL PREF value assigned by R8 because the prefix of R9 is moving to EBGP peer R10.
MY question is , in the real word can we use the community signaling method to influence the inbound traffic even if we are peering with two different providers ??
