I was reading the docs about the RB1200.
In the userguide, link is : http://routerboard.com/pdf/308/rb1200ug.pdf
I see in the latest page a scheme of the hardware.
Port 1 to 5 can be used as a switch (wire-speed I think)
6,7,8 direct connected to the CPU
9,10 are via the PCIe BUS.
When using as a Routed port, what is the difference using the port direct connected to the CPU or the ones via the PCIe bus?
I just want to understand.
