Thru my research on CCNP course, while sniffing EIgrp packets, I noticed that packets have IP TTL of two. I additionally validated this for rip. OSPF doesn't have this assets when you consider that it's link state.
Why does the EIGRP and rip have IP TTL of 2?
I already asked one CCIE man or woman, however he did not know.
I came to trust that this could have something to do with frame relay hub&spoke topologies. For example hub routing EIGRP multicasts from one spoke to every other (assuming subinterfaces)?
