question about null 0 static route

Ahmad,

Q1:

Because they're equal cost routes, they both get put into the routing table. The test that I did received one response and lost one response proving that it was losing traffic by also hitting the null0 interface:

Routing entry for 32.32.32.0/24

  Known via "static", distance 1, metric 0 (connected)

  Routing Descriptor Blocks:

  * 10.10.35.3

      Route metric is 0, traffic share count is 1

    directly connected, via Null0

      Route metric is 0, traffic share count is 1

R5#ping 32.32.32.32

Type escape sequence to abort.

Sending 5, 100-byte ICMP Echos to 32.32.32.32, timeout is 2 seconds:

!.!.!

Success rate is 60 percent (3/5), round-trip min/avg/max = 20/28/36 ms

R5#

S       32.32.32.0 [1/0] via 10.10.35.3

                   is directly connected, Null0

Q2:

This one will fall under the longest match rule. If you have a host going to 1.1.1.1 it will hit the null0 route, everything else would hit the default route.
