Hi,

if you use ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 you insert in the routing table a default route.

instead if you use 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.255 you insert in the routing table only the route toward host 0.0.0.0

I hope this helps.

Best regards.

Massimiliano.

Hi Massimiliano,

Thanks for the reply. Since there is no host with ip 0.0.0.0, does it mean that this command ip route 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.255 does not have any impact ?

Regards,

Manoj

Since there should not be a host with address 0.0.0.0 then the route to 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.255 would never be used.
