About the GRE Tunnel

Unanswered Question
Mar 2nd, 2010

Is this a true Cisco statemenet?

GRE tunnel encapsulation and deencapsulation for multicast packets are handled by the hardware in PFC3. Each hardware-assisted tunnel must have a unique source. Hardware-assisted tunnels cannot share a source even if the destinations are different.

I have this problem too.

So the unique source address can be any pingable interface and don't have to be a loopback, is that correct?

In our case, we had two WAN links to our routers.  Tunnel 0 source is F0/0 (/30) and Tunnel 1 source is F0/1 (/30).

Does this make sense?
