brillanmela1,

What exactly do you mean by a local route? If you are speaking about a normal route static route then you can specify the distance metric at the end of the route command - depending on the syntax of your platform IOS/ASA. In the below example, the number ten at the end of the command specifies the distance metric.
ip route 10.10.0.0 255.255.0.0 192.168.1.254 10
I hope that can be of some help to you, please do let me know if not.

Thanks,

Luke

The AD for connected routes

The AD for connected routes is 0.  Is that what you mean by "local route"?

I don't think there's a way to change the AD for connected routes.  But, since AD is a way to characterize the reliability of a source of routing information and I can't imagine any more reliable way of getting routing information than that the route is actually connected to the local router, I'm not sure why you'd want to change the AD of a connected route.

@Micheline_Murphy,

Micheline_Murphy,
Great answer, my thoughts exactly. I think we need to ascertain what he means by "local route". I too made the assumption that he was referring to a connected route, but also thought he was asking how to change the distance of a static.
We shall await a reply from Mr. brillanmela1 I suppose :-)
Thanks,
Luke

Hi Luke,

Hi Luke,

thanks for the response!

what I mean by local route is exactly what you guys mentioned "The AD for connected routes is 0"

I'm not success to manage it. I'll check my requirement again to see if I can achieve it through other ways

thanks!

@brillanmela1,

brillanmela1,

I did assume this would be the case. Depending on your platform and specific requirements, you should be able to use a route map to create policy based routing. As I say however - this very much depends on what you need to achieve.

Kind regards,
Luke
