  1. Hi !

    I am thinking to lab it up to try it to work. Anything that i should think of when a start with the nbma ? do you just have a switch between the interfaces ?

  2. Hi Oskar,

    I just used a switch to connect the routers to each other. It doesn’t matter much as long as they can reach each others NBMA addresses then you will be fine.

  5. Hi Abdus,

    This message:

    %ADJ-5-PARENT: Midchain parent maintenance for IP midchain out of Tunnel0

    Is usually a recursive routing issue. Your router is probably learning the NBMA address through the tunnel interface, which is why it collapses.
