quick static route question

my server folks want their ftp server

to use a specific route...this is the only device they want to use this path

if the ftp server on the far end is

192.168.5.6 255.255.255.0

would my static route be

192.168.5.6 255.255.255.255 192.168.4.3

If 4.3 is the path to be taken.

i would use all 255 subnet for this

particular route to this particular device...correct?

Re: quick static route question

Hi

It's not entirely clear where you are applying the route ? is it on a server or on a router.

192.168.5.6 255.255.255.255 192.168.4.3

means to get to host 192.168.5.6 send the packet to 192.168.4.3. Yes you would 255.255.255.255 if you just want to specify a destination host.

Re: quick static route question

yes..the route is for one specific host...

the configuration entry would be on the router,,

so all 255's?

it looks like it is routing the entire subnet

instead of one device

i only want one device to use this route

Router#sh ip route 192.168.9.0

Routing entry for 192.168.9.0/32, 1 known subnets

Redistributing via eigrp 1

S 192.168.9.80 [1/0] via 192.168.21.236

Re: quick static route question

Yes all 255's which specifies it is a host entry rather than a subnet entry.

Re: quick static route question

You need to use a route map that will match the source(ftp server) and set ip next hop (new ip)
