Use the set form of this command to enable a peering session to be established with a BGP neighbor that does not support capability negotiation.

Normally, if a BGP peer does not support capability negotiation, a peering session cannot be established and the connection is terminated. Setting this value overrides this process and allows the session to be established.

Use the delete form of this command to restore the default behavior.

Use the show form of this command to view BGP neighbor configuration settings.
