Static vs. Route?

Can someone tell me the difference between "static(inside,outside)..." and "route...." ?

Thanks

Re: Static vs. Route?

The static command creates a persistent one-to-one address translation rule by mapping a real IP address to a mapped IP address.

The route command simply enters a static or default route for the specified interface.

Does that answer your question?

Okay, so basically static is for IP addresses and route is for interfaces?

Hi

Not quite. They are both dealing with IP addresses.

The static command does a translation from one IP address to another.

The route command tells the firewall where to send packets that go through it eg.

On a pix you usually have a default route

0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 "ISP ip address" where ISP address is the next hop towards the internet from your firewall.

This tells the pix that any traffic that it doesn't have a more specific route for send to the ISP router.

I think the confusion for beginners here is drawing a similarity between a "static command" and a "static route". These are completely unrelated.
