Thanks everyone for all your replies,
> What is "openbgp version 3.72"?......
When I installed this package I did so with the following command
"pkg_add -r openbgpd
This link was no longer valid, I tried netcatting the open port in
hopes of getting a banner with a version, no luck. I backed up the
tree to "ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/i386/packages-6.1-release/"
and found the first openbgp package, sorry total swag.

I removed the prefix from .130 that both peers share and the result
was the same.

These hosts are local, same switch, same VLAN, 100mbTX, full duplex.
No errors on the switch.

These peers are local to eachother (100mb/TX), I want fast convergence

Could this have anything to do with the "BGP: %NOTIFICATION: received
from neighbor 192.168.12.129 5/0 (Finite State Machine Error) 0 bytes
BGP: 192.168.12.129 went from Established to Idle" error?

Not sure, I am going to upgrade to the latest (or snapshot based on
feedback from the group) and see if the error goes away.

I will send this if the issue is not resolved with the upgrade. Thx.
