I am currently learning routing on my own, i have a 2 routers. RouterA 22.214.171.124 and Routerb 126.96.36.199, i did not know how to do the static route so i type this command in IP ROUTE 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 188.8.131.52 on RouterA as well as RouterB 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0.0 184.108.40.206.
When i did a SHOW IP ROUTE it gave me a read out of S* which shows i am in static connections. So i assume i have this correct? i have no seariel connections to this, i am currently using the ethernet port to these routers with a public static ip address.
When i go in to global mode on RouterA and RouterB typed NETWORK 220.127.116.11 and exit back to priv mode and i typed DEBUG IP RIP.Then it states that rip is turned on and RouterA starts to to send packtes and says something like supressing null but does not show any metric nor hop like the book shows? but RouterB does not show what RouterA does, is it working?? i am learning this from the book and the book shows it has a metric and hop i think ?when it starts to supress. So am i doing this right?? i am new at this so if u can help me in a step by step command to show me???
