The present disclosure provides a solution which solves the re-configurations required for each IP interface for un-numbered IP networks by automatically learning the peer IP and eventually resolving the ARP of the peer interface. The current standard RFC 5309 outlines the need to know the MAC address on an unnumbered point-to-point network and only suggests a static approach to solve the problem. This helps in network configuration and network expansion as it enables hassle free node insertion. The present disclosure also provides an auto-debugging capability by which a node can raise a notification trap if it finds mismatch in interface type between local and peer node.
