Change the Route Administrative Distance ??

Hi all,

Is there any way of changing the Administrative Distance for a Directly Connected route?

I have tried this, but not working:

interface Ethernet0/0

ip address 10.9.1.100 255.255.255.0

interface FastEthernet0/0

ip address 172.20.254.254 255.255.0.0

ip route 172.20.0.0 255.255.0.0 10.9.1.1

ip route 172.20.0.0 255.255.0.0 FastEthernet0/0 200

TESTE#sh ip route 172.20.1.112

Routing entry for 172.20.0.0/16

Known via "connected", distance 0, metric 0 (connected, via interface)

Routing Descriptor Blocks:

* directly connected, via FastEthernet0/0

Route metric is 0, traffic share count is 1

Best regards,

Petr?nio

I don't think you can change the admin distance for a directly connected route. If your goal is to make f0/0 to be backup to e0/0 then you can configure something like this.

int e0/0

backup interface fastethernet0/0

Hi,

I don't think that it can be done, as there is no meaning for making a directly connected interface less preferred than a received route from another router.

HTH, please do rate all helpful replies,
