consider following small frame relay network:
DLCI 102 / \ DLCI 103
Configuration of frame relay is done entierly on main serial interface on all routers (i.e. sub-interfaces are not used). All interfaces are in the same /24 subnet. OSPF is configured on these interfaces as point-to-multipoint (alternatively as 'broadcast'). Once adjacency is formed, spoke routers will install /32 routes for each other spoke via hub router. All works fine, each spoke can ping other spoke without a problem.
For many years I just took for granted that such setup works, because it just seems to be natural to install /32 in order to get connectivity between spokes. But today I started to wonder where such behaviour is specified. I went through several RFC, digged in Cisco and Juniper documentation but couldn't find anything on the topic.
Does anyone know some document, which specifies/formalises installation of /32 routes in scenarios where two routers are on the same subnet but not OSPF neighbors? Is this universal behaviour or have somebody experienced different with other manufacturers?
