connectivity

Dear Friends,

I connected to routers (cisco 2611 and cisco 1750) thru serial interface back to back. I made the config on my interface i.e IP address, encapsulation. After this the link came up and i m able to ping the remote inter face.

let router A has serial IP address 10.16.0.1/30 and router B has 10.16.0.2/30.

If i give a "sh ip route" commnad on router A.

i m getting 10.16.0.0/30 is directly connected and 10.16.0.2/32 is directly connected.

i need to know why this 2 seperate entries are there in routing table.

i would be glad if someone clear my this query

regards

Manish

Re: connectivity

10.16.0.0/30 is your subnet and 10.16.0.2/32 is your host address

Re: connectivity

Router will always display network/subnet route first which is 10.16.0.0/30 configured/connected on the serial interface..Now you may be running ppp encapsulation and so during IPCP, router will negotiate the host route for the other router which is 10.16.0.2/32..You will see the same on the other side router too.
