HSRP Standby Router functions

Unanswered Question
May 20th, 2007

If I configure a routing protocol on HSRP members, does the standby router advertises routes on standby interface? If not is it possible to force the standby router to advertise the route?

I have this problem too.

As Amit says yes it does. HSRP is primarily used for end devices that do not participate in routing.

As far as routes that are exchanhed between routers are concerned the next hop is always the physical interface ie. routers don't use the HSRP address as the next hop when exchanging routes.
