Re: Routing

Hmm, I would say a MPLS/VPLS setup is more appropriate for what your trying to accomplish. As such, if you have an additional port on either R1 or R2 you can easily create a "logical ethernet interface" via a VPLS link to R3. Hopefully that sets you on the right path. What equipment are you using?
