Can you have two static routes?

You can have multiple static routes and default gateways. You can have both IPv4 and IPv6 default gateways simultaneously.

What are the two types of static routes?

There are four types of a static route. These types are the static network route, static host route, fix static route, and the floating static route. Each type uses the above information in a different way. Let’s discuss the above information and how each type uses the above information.

Which 2 options are advantages of static routes over dynamic routes?

Static routing provides some advantages over dynamic routing, including:

  • Static routes are not advertised over the network, resulting in better security.
  • Static routes use less bandwidth than dynamic routing protocols, as routers do not exchange routes.
  • No CPU cycles are used to calculate and communicate routes.

How many static routes are needed?

Static routing can be used for small networks that require only one or two routes. This is often more efficient since a link is not being wasted by exchanging dynamic routing information. Static routing is often used as a complement to dynamic routing to provide a failsafe backup if a dynamic route is unavailable.

Can you have multiple default routes?

No, it can’t have more than one active default gateway. Any operating system can have multiple default gateways configured (technically a route to the unspecified address, i.e. 0.0. 0.0 or :: ). In that event, it does what it would do for any route destination with multiple paths.

What would happen if there were two possible default gateways?

When multiple default gateways are used in TCP/IP configuration options on a Windows NT computer, connectivity to computers on remote networks may be lost. On multihomed computers connected to disjointed networks, static routes may be added to the routing table to get connectivity to remote networks.

On which two routers would a default static route be configured?

On which two routers would a default static route be configured? (Choose two.) Explanation: A stub router or an edge router connected to an ISP has only one other router as a connection. A default static route works in those situations because all traffic will be sent to one destination.

What is default route in networking?

A default route is the route that takes effect when no other route is available for an IP destination address. If a packet is received on a routing device, the device first checks to see if the IP destination address is on one of the device’s local subnets.

What are two advantages of dynamic routing with a routing protocol over static routing?

The chief advantages of dynamic routing over static routing are scalability and adaptability. A dynamically routed network can grow more quickly and larger, and is able to adapt to changes in the network topology brought about by this growth or by the failure of one or more network components.

What is default static route?

A default static route is a static route with 0.0. 0.0 as the destination IP address and subnet mask. This is commonly referred to as a “quad zero” route. In a default route, either the next-hop IP address or exit interface can be specified.

Why do we need a default route?

A default route gives a route to a router to forward all incoming packets whose destination network addresses are not available in the routing table.

What happens if you have two default gateways?

How to set default route for static and injected routes?

Set the metric for the default route on router 1 and 2 to 210 and 220 respectively. Only one default route will make it to the routing table, the injected route has a higher AD than the static route, so the static route is what is used.

Why won’t my router work when one interface is down?

When outbound interfaces are up each router takes it own default route. When one interface is down it doesnt work right either because it keeps its default route in its routing table and routes out to a black hole. What am I doing wrong? Solved!

When does troubleshoot start when primary link fails?

Primarily, in such scenarios, troubleshoot starts when you analyse the cause of failure of primary link.
