Hi,

What is the reason behind sending all OSPF packets as multicast in point-to-point network , though its directly connected router ?


Thanks,

Vijay

  • Cisco Employee,

This alleviates the need to have to configure a neighbor address. Otherwise, which unicast address would you send the hellos to.


Hope this helps,
