I have scoured the internet for an answer to this question, and am no closer to having it answered. Am hoping someone here can help!
* Why do we use link-local (or autoconfig) addresses for the standby IP in FHRPs? If you are forwarding a packet towards a link-local destination address, wouldn't the source address then have to be a link-local address from the same prefix, which according to scope, should not route beyond the local link? How do you route an IP packet that has a link-local address for a source address?
Any insight would be much appreciated.
Thank you in advance.
