er-plcgua1#

I have 3 routes on number 1 does it mean that my packet goes to both routes before next hop number 2?

This is a ATM PVC 200.1.147.154

this is a Atm pvc 200.1.147.162 to the same destination but less bandwith

Thanks a lot

Regards

I have this problem too.

This output shows that the router considers both paths as equally valid and equally attractive ways to reach destination 167.175.231.235. So the router is load sharing the traffic in which the first probe packet is sent out the interface connected to 200.1.147.154 and the second packet is sent out the interface connected to 200.1.147.162 and the third packet is sent out the interface connected to 200.1.147.154. You should be able to verify this by doing show ip route 167.175.231.235. I would expect the output to show that the routing table has 2 entries of how to reach that destination.
