Im having some “fun” with static routes. Its an okay topology, 4 routers connected. The task asked for having some floating static routes, along with some load-balancing routes. Since they are CEF based, it will be load-shared by default to destination load sharing. Note to self: if incomming interface is CEF, what is the output switching method going to be? — Thats right, CEF.
One thing that strike’s me, is the complexity of static routes in a relatively small network. The use of a dynamic routing protocol in even small topologies become quite evident. The task also required you to write static routes in their full length, with the use of summarization. Then you REALLY have a mess to work with. Default routes on stub routers will save alot of typing/head scratching.
Anyways, good stuff to read and review.
