Re: ip classless

Hello,

with the "ip classless" command you can change the behaviour for Non-OSPF or ISIS learned networks.

Have a look at the command reference at

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/iosswrel/ps5187/products_command_reference_chapter09186a008017d169.html#wp1080427

where you can also find the explanation:

"This command allows the software to forward packets that are destined for unrecognized subnets of directly connected networks. The packets are forwarded to the best supernet route.

When this feature is disabled, the Cisco IOS software discards the packets when a router receives packets for a subnet that numerically falls within its subnetwork addressing scheme, no such subnet number is in the routing table, and there is no network default route.

Note: If the supernet, or default route, is learned via IS-IS or OSPF, the no ip classless configuration command is ignored."

Hope this helps!

Please rate all posts.

Regards, Martin
