Lookin'Bot: Telegram BGP lookinglass bot

Real BGP table Telegram Bot with some network utilities



This site started at 13 may 2004 as single page site. In a few years site became more complex. On Feb.2007 site was transferred to SQL database with some new features and online BGP-filter creator (ACL generator). The site was redesigned as well. On november 2008 site was refactored, and new design (thanks to Wacke) implemented.


Feature Description
Sorting You can choose table fields you wish to see and sorting methods for them. Check checkboxes and choose one method from drop-down list and click "Save values".
Clickable map You can choose continent you are interested in by clicking on the World map. It only works at the Home page.
ACL generator You can create BGP as-path access-list and prefix-list for your AS-SET. You can also create outgoing ACL for your BGP router.
Feedback form Any kind of feedback from you is important for us. Please, feel free to send us any kind of information and new links you want to see at our site. You can also send question about LG links we don’t have.
