    According to documentation origin can be: IGP (route came from IGP protocol
    with commands network x.x.x.x, aggregate-address ..), incomplete
    (redistributed from IGP into BGP), and EGP.
    I don't know in what situations I can see route in BGP table that has EGP
    origin. Never seen it in any examples when running command
    show ip bgp
    Does anybody knows in which situations route can have EGP origin ?

  2. An origin of EGP refers to the EGP protocol rather than EBGP. Given
    that EGP is all but history, you'll rarely see a route with an origin
    of EGP, and when you do it's probably being set manually by a
    route-map or something.

    thanks for clearing that up.

  4. What happens if BGP routes get imported into OSPF and from there
    redistributed back to BGP? Might those get EGP as origin?

  5. I don't see why they would. Remember, EGP refers to EGP the protocol
    (BGP's predecessor; RFC 904) rather than EBGP.

  6. OSPF is an IGP, so I think the default when importing OSPF routes into
    BGP is to tag them with the IGP origin. They'll only be tagged
    differently if you have a route-map associated with the "redistribute
    ospf" statement, and it contains "set origin XXX".
