  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 172.16.0.0/16 is subnetted, 2 subnets rather than /24.

    correct me if i am wrong.

  3. Hello Kapil

    It is true that the 172.16.0.0 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>172.16.0.0/24 is subnetted, 2 subnets</strong>
    S       172.16.0.0 [1/0] via 192.168.12.2
    S       172.16.1.0 [1/0] via 192.168.12.2
    S*   0.0.0.0/0 [1/0] via 192.168.12.2

  4. Thanks for the explanation … I think now I get it I have never worked on 12.X version of the IOS as it was already out of date by the time i started learning networking. So I thought it is weird.

    Extremely detailed answer. Thanks again
