Hi all

Would it be possible to put a next hop for a default route to somewhere on another network? or am I right in thinking that the device would never get there as the next hop is not directly connected, is this called recursive routing ?

It is indeed possible to configure any route to a non-directly connected NH. And yes that would be called a recursive route.

R1 - R2 - R3

On R1:

ip route

ip route

So, the default route is pointing to on R3. But to reach, R1 needs to route to R2.
