I have created a management Vlan. And I would like to access all the devices being the part of same subnet. I would like to understand how does it work?
If I telnet Cat6500 on loopback ip from the same subnet, how do the packets travel to loopback ? Is it through other ethernet for e.g. physical interface. So if the ethernet interface was down how would I reach the loopback.
And if the loopback ip is multiple hops away from the remote connecter, would the routes towards loopback interface need to be advertised.
Just interested in knowing how does loopback work for management purpose.
