Dear Gentle Folk,
I believe I have seen, but no longer have, an example config on the net connecting multiple mikrotics together in a web/loop with OSPF.
Although each router served different customer subnets from various of their own interfaces, the tiks themselves
were connected via an lo loop-back interface on each router which was assigned on a bridge of its own.
Does this even make sense?
5 routers, each with a loop-back interface, each on a bridge 1, and each interface connected to the network.
Does this bridge all the routers together though their shared lo/bridge?
If so doesn't this create a broadcast loop?
I believe the point was to put all the mikrotics on one single private subnet regardless of where they were in the network, for easy access to them, particularly if one of the many cross connected links went down.
Is there a white paper I can read on this kind of this?
Thank you in advance,
