      • [EndDESTINATION]
    • [MTP3]
      • [STP]
      • AdjacentPC=3
      • [EndSTP]
      • [STP]
      • AdjacentPC=4
      • [EndSTP]
      • [DESTINATION]
      • RemotePC=2
        • [ROUTE]
        • AdjacentPC=3
        • [EndROUTE]
        • [ROUTE]
        • AdjacentPC=4
        • [EndROUTE]
