My experience is that offset list only increases the metric. I am not aware of any way to subtract metric. If you found a reference that indicates that it can subtract I suspect that it is a mistake. If you have the reference we can point it out to Cisco and ask for correction.

Re: Can offset-list subtract metric?

the following URL list the output of real router:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/iosswrel/ps1820/products_configuration_guide_chapter09186a00800a17da.html

you can find the about the offset-list the explanation " Add or subtract offset from IGRP, RIP, or HELLO metrics"

I use the real router online-help ,that describe same. what the hell?

I checked and now I agree with you that the online help in routers does say that offset list does add or subtract. And it does not subtract it only adds. So you have found a flaw in online help. Perhaps you should open a case with Cisco to get it corrected.
