Routing and PROPER proceedures

I am wondering... is it proper proceedure when doing static routes at the beginning of a series of 5 or so routers to make the gateway for your routing statement the next router in line and then do addtional static routes so on down the line or just to the actual destination router??

It is my understanding that you'd want specific statics to each of the destination LAN/VLAN.

Re: Routing and PROPER proceedures

On each router, a static route to the subnet (net number and mask) and the IP address of the router that is the next-hop along the way there. You will need a static route for each subnet that a router is NOT directly connected to. The next-hop router should have an IP address that is on one of the directly connected subnets.

If your subnets are numbered such that you can adjust the mask to cover several of them with one command, you can minimize the number of static routes you need to enter.

The ultimate summary route is the default route, which tells a router "when you don't know explicitly where to send traffic, send it HERE". This is what you find alot on routers that connect you to the Internet.

Hope this helps.
