Description of problem:
Route will not install if cipe interface ip is in same address space.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Bring up cipe inteface on HOST A with ip of 192.168.200.1 and HOST B peer of
2.Have bgp peer HOST A send 192.168.0.0/16 route to HOST B
3.Confirm route in bgp table, not in kernel routing table
Actual Results: Route of 192.168.0.0/16 is not put in kernel routing table.
Expected Results: Route of 192.168.0.0/16 is put into kernel routing table.
As a test instead of sending the /16 which overlaps the cipe interface, I sent
it as a /17, that route does get put into the kernel routing table. Wasn't sure
if this is kernel or cipe, but it is definelty cipe related. I even advertised
the same route from another peer (Router C)across the ethernet0 and saw the same
Will attach a diagram as well.
