RE: iBGP next hop and multi-access media

  • From: Charles Youse

Really, the only way this could happen is if Router B is not announcing its
routes to 172.16.16/24 and Router A has a default route to its Ethernet
interface.

Not really, what I want is router A to learn that ther is no next hop IP-
the subnet is on the local ethernet.
