With a distance vector protocol if the distance to a destination increases, the router sets a holddown timer until which the router will not accept any new updates for that route. Thats fair enough.
But I need to know if the holddown timer is still applicable when poison reverse is enabled also?
I mean when the router receives a rip update for a route (its own advertised route) with a metric of 16 due to poison reverse) will the router apply the holddown timer for the same route connected on another interface (with a metric lets say 2)?
Is the holddown used for updates with infinite metric (eg 16 for rip)?
Hope I made myself articulate enough.
Thanks in advance.
