Floating Staic Route
« on: November 05, 2017, 11:33:33 AM »
A static floating route is the same as normal static route except that it has an administrative distance configured to some value higher than 1.

Typical command to configuer static floating route is given below:
R1(config)#ip route 172.16.20.0 255.255.255.0 10.10.10.9 100

Whereas typical static route configuration is as given below:
R1(config)#ip route 172.16.20.0 255.255.255.0 10.10.10.9

A static floating route is useful if you want any other route to be active and use the static floating route as a backup route.
