[b]Static Routes[/b] 9 years 11 months ago #28940

Dear all,
There are 3 methods to configure statis routes.
ip route E0
ip route
ip route E0

What difference they make. I've been told that the last method is recommended. Why?
I also wanna know what's 'recursive route'
Thank you.

Hi Maestro,

Below routes have some differences.

The 1st one will just send the package out of the E0 interface, no next hop is specified. Broadcast will be used for this one. Security issues can come up, especially with E0 interfaces.

The 2nd one will send towards an IP address, but IP addresses can be reachable over multiple interfaces.

The 3rd one will send out a specific interface towards a specific next hop address. No bandwidth is lost by broadcasting, security issues are reduced and it's a unicast.

Recursive Routes can be found @
CCNA / CCNP / CCNA - Security / CCIP / Prince2 / Checkpoint CCSA
