Route statements in PIX 515 ver 7.1(2)

Unanswered Question
Jun 28th, 2007

Hi all,

I know the order of route statements matter on a router, but how about on a PIX 515 running ver. 7?

It's kind of weird, when I upgraded the device from 7.1(1) to 7.1(2)53, all of my route commands got reversed! So the default route is now at the bottom of the list.


I have this problem too.

Not sure what you mean by the order of routes. Do you mean how they appear when you do a "sh ip route" on a router ?

if so the order does not matter. The router will always use the longest match in the routing table so whether the default route appears at the top of the output or the bottom is irrelevent.

AFAIK routing is handled the same way on the pix.

Have i misundertood ?
