Auto last hop

Hi

Is 'Auto Last Hop' feature used exclusively by F5? Do other vendors have similar functionality? Linux kernel, Cisco?

I.e. F5's 'nPath routing' is knows as 'Direct Server Return' in Cisco world. Maybe 'ALH' has a different name as well?

Thank you.

I think Netscaler supports it too (MAC-Based Forwarding).
