Match address and routing

I have a couple of tunnels which I am passing GRE over to obtain routing information and these work OK. However if i do not want to pass GRE over a tunnel could I use a static ropute eg ip route x.x.x.x x.x.x.x tunnel1. What effect would this have ?. Furthermore is the 'match address' statement effectively a route to the destination network ?. Does it mean that all traffic matching the access list is immediately sent down the tunnel the match address is defined in regardless of whether a route exists or not. I have read lots of stuff on this but I just want to get this clear in my head as I may need to create 40 + tunnels.


Re: Match address and routing

Often times complex troubleshooting issues are best addressed in an interactive session with one of our trained technical assistance engineers. While other forum users may be able to help, it’s often difficult to do so for this type of issue.

To utilize the resources at our Technical Assistance Center, please visit and to open a case with one of our TAC engineers, visit

If anyone else in the forum has some advice, please reply to this thread.
