Re: I want add static route

The generic form for adding a static is:

ip route


ip route interface metric

If you do not specify the optional metric, the route using the gateway address will get a metric of one and the static using the "interface" keyword will get a metric of zero.

So, if I understand your setup, you'd use a command like:

ip route

or, if the network was on you S0/0.100 subinterface it would look like:

ip route interface S0/0.100

Again, the first example would get a default metric of 1, the second example would get a default metric of 0.

Be careful using static (and default) routes. It's easy to accidently se up a routing loop. If you start getting errors like "TTL Expired" .... you almost certainly have a routing loop.

If you need to remove the static route, just repeat the command (the whole command) with a "no" in front of it like this:

no ip route


Good Luck

Re: I want add static route

Scott has done a good job of explaining the principles of configuring static routes. I offer one small correction: any static route gets an administrative distance of 1 (I know that there are multiple sources that say that there is an administrative distance difference between statics that specify a next hop address or statics that specify an output interface - but if you check the operation on the router all statics get an administrative distance of 1).

I am not clear about the original post, it describes having 6 WAN interfaces, then it talks about several networks and servers. Perhaps the original poster can be more specific about the topology and about what the problem is. If we understand better what is configured and what the problem is, then perhaps we can give better advice about what the solution might be.
