Hello Irfan,

the most specific route is used.

if both protocols propose the same prefix and prefix len the lower AD is installed in the routing table.

Hope to help

then there is no meaning of AD if the maximum match prefix route is coming from higher AD...

Hello Irfan,

most specific route first

AD is looked at to break a tie in prefix length

Hope to help
