The note referenced above does not correctly describe ILNP.
I'll leave it to others as to whether it correctly describes GSE.
- ILNP does NOT ever use the Identifier for routing/forwarding packets.
- The Identifier is only used for identity purposes in ILNP.
- ILNP *only* uses the Locator to route/forward packets,
including when mobility or multi-homing are part of the deployment.
Ran, after the Locator guides the packet to a subnetwork, does the
packet ever go through another IP router on its way to the destination
endpoint? If so, how is it known what the next hop should be to forward
to unsubscribe send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org with the
word 'unsubscribe' in a single line as the message text body.
