AS-path filters that are configured on a router select those routes that are allowed. Routes that are selected behave as described here:
■ The selected routes enter the local BGP table when the selection is applied on the incoming routes from a neighbor; routes that are not selected are silently dropped.
■ The selected routes are transmitted to the neighbor when the selection is applied on the outgoing routes to the neighbor; routes that are not selected are used locally but are never sent to the neighbor.
