Thank you for the quick response and also for answering my questions.
In short, I would need to make sure the IP endhosts can reach the SIG nodes using forwarding, routing tables etc.
After that the SIG would take over of sending it across. Understood the part now.
Thanks and Regards

yes, this is how the SIG is intended to be used. The node running the SIG will act just like a normal IP router. You'll have to enable ip forwarding (see e.g. here http://www.upubuntu.com/2012/12/how-to-enable-ip-forwarding-under.html) on the SIG nodes, and, of course, you'll need to configure the routing tables both on the SIG nodes and the end hosts.

Yes, you can use both routable or non-routable IP networks.
Hope this helps.

Use Case - Two IP endhosts under different ASes should be reachable over SCION network using SIG.
Currently SIG can be configured between two ASes.
Is there a simple way for endhosts to use these SIGs ?
Its known that the network could be defined in the SIG configuration, but would it work for globally non routable IP ?
Thanks and regard
