Static routing


You are the network administrator at Ranet, and have to config the routers both Ranet-HQ and Ranet-BR to make the connection throughout Ranet network and with the Internet. So all you have to do are:

(Config via console of each router.)


1. Enable and set IP address on LAN interface of each router to be the last assignable IP of each subnet.


2. Enable serial interface on each router and set IP address on each interface as:


- s0/0/0 on Ranet-BR: last IP of
- s0/0/0 on Ranet-HQ: first IP of
- s0/1/0 on Ranet-HQ: last IP of
all serial interface use HDLC as encapsulation protocol and do not forget to set clock rate at 64 kbps on Ranet-BR side.


3. Set static route of each LAN on each router to let Host1 connect to Host2. (Use destination interface
instead of IP next hop.)


4. Set default route on each router to let both Host1 and Host2 be able to connect to the Online Server
( in the internet.


while answering one line of answer for static route is 

ip route se0/0/0        

how did they get as the summery route as the answer

That's not a summary route, it's a host network in your topology connected to Ranet-BR router.

We see Host2 with an IP of  So that's on, or part of, the (or subnet.

I presume that route statement was to be assigned on Ranet-HQ router and that s0/0/0 is its port that connects to Ranet-BR router.


A summary route would be, for example, your, that you might have on the ISP-GW router.  Using it would preclude the need to list your 3 52.7.9.x subnets.

The route would be on Ranet

The route would be on Ranet-Hq as to get to Ranet-BR LAN follow serial interface,

The LAN subnet on Ranet-BR is correct to be

As the LAN subnet of Ranet-HQ would be

For the router interface, it should be the last assignable IP Address:
