HSRP?

Please see diagram...

- There is direct connection between Router A and Router B.

- Each router is linked up to a L3 switch. Router A -> Switch A, Router B -> Switch B

- The switches have configured a HSRP address between them.

- The switches are interconnected via a L2 etherchannel trunk

The question is,

- can I configure a HSRP address (192.168.1.102) between the 2 routers?

- If can, then how is the hello packets going through? RtrA->SwA->SwB->RtrB??

Re: HSRP?

Hi

Yes - you can configure the new HSRP address between the 2 routers, provided that the two routers LAN interfaces are in the same VLAN (which they must be with their current IPs).

The hello packets are multicast from the routers, so will go to any listening devices in the VLAN they are transmitted into. They will pass through switches.
