Difference between "ip default-gateway" and "ip route"?

Unanswered Question

On the Catalyst switches, is it the same to use "ip default-gateway" or "ip route" to set a default route?

Thanks a lot


I have this problem too.

No a default gateway is only used if you have turned off ip routing on the L3 switch . If you have ip routing turned on you would use the static default route pointing to the next hop address.
