    Right from Doyle Vol 1, 2nd edition, if you can't understand this, then well I don't think anyone can help you.

    "Next hop identifies a better next hop address, if one exists, than the address of the advertising router. That is, it indicates a next-hop address, on the same subnet, that is metrically closerto the destination then the advertising router is. Is the field is set to all zeros (, the address of the advertising router is the best next-hop address."
    Now working full time!
