My book says hsrp is cisco's proprietary protocol . The book also says rfc 2281 describes this protocol in detail.
My question is how it could be possible for hsrp to be cisco's proprietary protocol but yet still be defined by ietf rfc?
thanks and have a great weekend
it looks like strange, however the RFC has been produced in the process to introduce VRRP as a reference
This document reflects an existing deployed protocol. The IETF does have a working group which is in the process of producing a standards track protocol to address the same issues.
And the authors are two people from Cisco and two people from Juniper
Hope to help
