The use of static routing is one of the cleverest networking configuration tricks I have learned despite it being difficult to find information on how to do it on the internet. Therefore I thought I would right it up with a rather detailed example with which to explain how to utilise it. I invite anyone to help on re-working it if they feel the topic could be explained better!


Not sure why but my userid User:DrModiford has been replaced by my internet IP. So it's me in case you're wondering!

some thoughts on this

ip/name: it's because you're not logged in.

dismissing subnetting with "and so on" is a disservice cos it's more complex than that, but I don't really see an easy way to explain it and not glaze people's eyes over. other than that small quibble (which I really don't know what to suggest to change, i'm just pointing it out), I would say excellent article, might want to mention VPNs in there somewhere (as static routes are used a lot in site-to-site VPN'ing (especially IPSec, although Jimbo prefers SSL/openSSL tunnels, they're the de facto standard...)
