Exterior Gateway Routing Protocol (EGP)

Exterior Gateway Protocol (EGP) is a Routing Protocol which is used to find network path information between different networks. It is commonly used in the Internet to exchange routing table information between two neighbor gateway hosts (each with its own router) in a network of autonomous systems. Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) is the only Exterior Gateway Protocol (EGP) at the time.
