Come on, I did not say that a PC can handle everything, just that it can handle easily 100k routes. I don't know the limit but neither do you (did you try the funny experiment you suggest or are you just guessing?) The only thing I'm sure, because I run it daily, is that 100k routes is not a lot for today's machines. > The black and white simplicity expressed by people on this forum is > unbelievable. The ability of some people to continue the discussion about the "routing table explosion" legend as if we were still in a world of 64 mega-bytes routers (with a Motorola 68020) is unbelievable.
