A report on Routing and Static routing

Static routing is a form of routing that occurs when a router uses a manually-configured routing entry, rather than information from dynamic routing traffic.

- Static routing

With static routing, small networks may use manually configured routing tables.

Systems that do not implement dynamic routing are described as using static routing, where routes through a network are described by fixed paths.

Intermediate System to Intermediate System (IS-IS) determines the best route for data through a packet-switched network.

Routing table

Data table stored in a router or a network host that lists the routes to particular network destinations, and in some cases, metrics (distances) associated with those routes.

Static routes are entries made in a routing table by non-automatic means and which are fixed rather than being the result of routing protocols and associated network topology-discovery procedures.

This forwarding table contains only the routes which are chosen by the routing algorithm as preferred routes for packet forwarding.

Administrative distance

Administrative distance (AD) or route preference is a number of arbitrary unit assigned to dynamic routes, static routes and directly-connected routes.

The value is used in routers to rank routes from most preferred (low AD value) to least preferred (high AD value).
