I don't quite understand this so maybe someone can clear it up for me (could be a bug?)
I have 2 routers
- CCR1016 running 6.37.5 (R1) - 10.0.0.1/28
- RB2011 running 6.39.3 (R2) - 10.0.0.2/28
They are connected over a point-to-multipoint fixed wireless link (R1 is the hub, R2 is a spoke) that has other routers but they are not yet participating in OSPF
The wireless AP has traffic isolation turned on so R2 cannot directly talk to R3, hence the need to use a non broadcast traffic type for OSPF
If I use broadcast, point to point or NBMA it all works as expected (currently only using 2 routers so ptp and broadcast won't be suitable later), but NBMA is also very slow to converge and update LSA's - maybe 15 seconds. I find I can't set the poll interval any lower than about 3s either or there's flapping routes (despite only having 14ms latency between them)
If I use point-to-multipoint in OSPF between these 2 routers then R1 stops advertising the 10.0.0.0/28 subnet and instead ONLY advertises the host routes (10.0.0.2). I have 10.0.0.0/28 in the networks tab. This means that I cannot reach i.e. 10.0.0.8 which is a radio in that subnet.
I expected to see both the network of 10.0.0.0/28 as well as the specific host routes, but 10.0.0.0/28 doesn't get advertised at all
Is this functioning by design or is this a bug in RouterOS?
