Discussion :: IP Routing - IP Routing (Q.No.1)

1. 

Which of the following statements are true regarding the command ip route 172.16.4.0 255.255.255.0 192.168.4.2?

  1. The command is used to establish a static route.
  2. The default administrative distance is used.
  3. The command is used to configure the default route.
  4. The subnet mask for the source address is 255.255.255.0.

[A]. 1 and 2
[B]. 2 and 4
[C]. 3 and 4
[D]. All of the above

Answer: Option A

Explanation:

Although answer D almost seems right, it is not; the mask is the mask used on the remote network, not the source network. Since there is no number at the end of the static route, it is using the default administrative distance of 1.

Thanks,

The first IP sub net is why 255.255.255.0?

It is class B. It should be 255.255.0.0
