Router is searching its routing table to reach the neighbor connect. Bgp forms a tcp session with neighbor routers called peers. Unlike other routing protocols however, bgp does not use broadcast or multicast to discover other bgp neighbors. Bgp is classified as a path vector protocol, and it makes routing decisions based on paths, network policies, or rulesets configured by a network administrator and is involved in making core routing decisions. Just like ospf or eigrp, bgp establishes a neighbor adjacency with other routers before any routing information is exchanged.
