IGPs in use

No argument with the principles here but why do you need to redistribute
connected interfaces into your IGP *and* into iBGP? Overkill, surely?

This threw me too, actually. It's just wording. "backbone connected
interfaces" means "interior interfaces on which you run your IGP".

For example:

int POS1/0/0
description connection to another backbone location
ip address foo bar
isis circuit-type level-2-only
isis metric 1 level-2

which I think is what Jared means. The terminology to
explain the difference between that and actually putting
a prefix into your IGP is a bit dense, so a shortcut probably
was a reasonable idea. --:slight_smile:
