    bgp multi-homed failover with as_path prepending


      I have a multi-homed failover scenario. I advertise my public subnet to ISP1 with normal AS path and prepend the AS path going to ISP2 so that ISP2 will act as the backup. I would expect that for the inbound traffic, everything will go to ISP1. But after inspecting the traffic through the firewall/router, I see inbound traffic going through ISP2 as well. How do I fix that? I only want inbound traffic via ISP2 if ISP1 would go down. Is this something that ISP2 has to do on their end? Thx
