Specifying valid next-hop and default-nexthop addresses

PBR does not support remote routers as next-hop or default-next-hop routers (a.k.a recursive). PBR only supports routers that are on a directly connected network. During configuration you may specify any IPv4 or IPv6 address as a next-hop or default-nexthop, however only those addresses reachable through a directly connected network will be installed as the active PBR entry.

If a specified address is reachable from the router, it must be on a directly connected subnet or it will not become active.
