Re: iBGP next hop and multi-access media

Let me see if I got this.
unknown networks behind it
uses 10.10.10.2 as a neighbor to router B
has a network 172.16.16/24
uses 10.10.10.1 as a neighbor to router A.
Router A's table shows
172.16.16/24 -> 10.10.10.2
You want Router A to ARP and pretend its on the local
broadcast domain for the 172.16.16/24 prefix.
But that prefix is NOT local to router A, thus it must
ROUTE and thus uses the NexHop in its table.
It seems you description is wrong.... But I don't know..
