LG is a Looking Glass written in Perl as a CGI script. It can execute almost all BGP-related commands and do ping and traceroute in routers or relay these queries to other looking glasses.

It supports both IPv4 and IPv6 commands, and is tested with Cisco, Zebra, and Juniper. It can connect to a router using different methods of remote connection like SSH, telnet or rsh.

Here are some key features of "LookingGlass":
all BGP show commands, ping and traceroute
IPv4 and IPv6 support
router access using SSH, telnet, rsh or via other public LG
XML configuration file (requires XML::Parser)
local ASN database and hyperlinks to RIPE/ARIN/APNIC/JPNIC/LACNIC whois server
improved hyperlinking between different BGP views
highlights best route
tested with Cisco, Zebra and Juniper

What's New in This Release:
SECURITY: rshcmd check
new TELNET protocol handling, change term size to fit command string
async line-by-line reading of telnet data to show traceroutes in realtime
hide BGP session port numbers if "secure" mode used
