use the .255 address?

router A-------router B------router C

I try to use a as a router C's loopback .

the interface between B C is the interface

between A B is

on router A B C use "ip classless"and " ip subnet zero"

but I find on router B ping, it always reply from

router A's interface as a broadcast address ,

"Reply to request 0 from,1 ms"

what's wrong with it? can't I use the .255 address ?


Re: use the .255 address?

Have you put static routes on B, telling it how to reach or atleast a routing protocol running between routers A, B, and C. You can definitely use as loopbacks ip address. Looks to me like a routing issue.

Please paste your configs, as well as snapshots of ip routes on each router A, B, C.
