There's a mobile version of our website.
I found on CCNP Selfstudy for BSCI the following:
Point-to-Multipoint NB ----Unicast
Does the table correct?
But then I found in the following document that 'Point-to-Multipoint sends unicast packets after the 2-way state'. Does it mean that P-t-MP default is multicast and then changes to Unicast after 2-way established?
Thanks in advance.
Are you reading Gough?
1. For the state of P-t-MP traffic to change after 2-way is established, you have to actually change the network type on all routers to point-to-multipoint.
2. According to your link - section 8.1 of RFC 2328, OSPF sends a multicast packet for a point-to-point network-type even after the interface achieves the 2-way state.
3. The beef is that an interface can't form adjacency with more than one neighbor because it is an BRI/PRI/dialer interface (and hence, a point-to-point link). But you want the interface to act link a P-t-MP interface. So back to 1: change the network type on all routers to point-to-multipoint...
A circular argument, but then again, so is the problem! Would appreciate more thought on this,
