  1. Rene,

    Hello, thanks for the explanation of this, it is nice to finally have an understanding of this command.


  2. Hi Rene,

    Great explanation but I think it should be is subnetted, 2 subnets rather than /24.

    correct me if i am wrong.

  3. Hello Kapil

    It is true that the subnet is a class B address, and thus in clasful IP addressing it would have a prefix of /16 rather than /24. However, classless and classful routing should not be confused with classless and classful addressing or routing protocols.

    Having said that, it can be confusing when the routing table states that:

    R1#show ip route static
    <strong> is subnetted, 2 subnets</strong>
    S [1/0] via
    S [1/0] via
    S* [1/0] via

  4. Nice explanation Rene’. Makes perfect sense.

    One comment about the configs for R1. I don’t see the static default route in the config.

  5. Hello Andy

    Yes you are correct, I will let Rene know.

    Thanks very much for catching that!
