Static Route(part I)

Ok. Let us go on to Static Routing.
What is Static Route?
Static Route is a concept describing one way of configuring path selection of routers in computer networks.
There are 2 ways to Route in Router. That is Static Route and Dynamic Route.
In this part, we will describe first about static Route.
First we must know the Benefit and weakness using static route.
Benefit static route:
- Static route is more safe than dynamic route
- Static route is more invulnerable from any hacker attempt to spoofing the dynamic routing package protocols with mean to hack the traffic.
- The Administration is more complex than dynamic routing especially if there are many router that need to be configure manually.
- Vulnerable to any error when entry data static route manually.
In Cisco Device, there are protocol which had function to know the information from another cisco device which connected in “directly connected”.
In routing table contain the directly connected information.
Routing table is being save in RAM.
If the router being shutdown or get problem from layer 1, the directly connected is missing and all route which have destination to interface it is also missing.
In next tutorial i will give example about routing static.
To make us easy to learn, first we must install packet tracer first.
Below is the link to download packet tracer
Next we will do exercise routing static. :)
