nail on the head. I need the XXXX:XXXX notation for the BGP preference. I need to be able to set a provider as a backup, for example: qwest would be 209:70

I could be wrong, but I think OP was requesting for BGP communities. I don't think he was asking for their SNMP community strings - I've never heard of a situation where a provider would allow their customers to poll their routers via SNMP.

Or did I miss something?
