Hi ,

Suppose the next hop to default route is the exit interface then administrative distance is 0.


RTR A (S0) ----------------------(S1)RTR B

ip route A S0 ip address)

If the next hop to default route is the other end router ip then administarive distance is 1.


RTR A (S0) ----------------------(S1)RTR B

ip route (RTR B S1 ip address)

Hope it help you.

Hi, It depends on how you defined default route on device. If u define gateway as IP of next hope device in default route then AD will be one & if u define interface like serial 0/1 or fa0/1 or Dialer 0 then AD wud be 0 becaz these r directly connected interfaces. basically AD is define the preferences of route.
