Does anyone have any good resources about how to effectively use BGP communities?

I'm going to start going through Cisco docs, but am hoping someone may know of something a bit more simplistic to get started with. The Cisco docs aren't known for being short and to the point.

try starting with this simple explanation given here :,,sid9_gci213813,00.html

then carry on with Cisco's explanations. you can also try google to come up with various other websites which gives snippets of information about BGP. this should make things easier to tackle when going through the notes of BGP from Cisco.

yes i agree Cisco stuff can be a bit long winded. :?:
