Hello Experts

For some weird reason I can't ping my PC's loopback interface from any GNS3 lab router but I can ping the router's interface from my loopback interface.

Can someone please shed some light on any reason why that is?

Cheers

Carlton

I need more clarification on this.

loopback addresses work differently on routers and computers.

Loopbacks on PCs are designed as local hosts and are not  routable.

Please paste a network diagram with ip configuration so I can understand your setup better
