Firewall routing tables


I have to create some routing tables for my router/firewall but I don't really know how these should be done, what they must include and the best way to display them. Could really do with some pointers or good tutorials on them. I'm assuming that the table should have something like what IP's are allowed and what ports etc but I'm not sure. Cheers for any help

One big resource on the web...

Ok I had a look there but it seems more to do with actually configuring routers, which is not what I need. I'm basically creating a fictional network for some uni work. And I just need to know how I should display routing tables to show where the information is going. I did find this page which looks promising. Could you let me know if you think this looks about right

The diagram is a good start.  You need to provide more detail on what you want the final outcome to be.
Go to a PC, open a command prompt
C:\>route print

You will see the route table displayed

>I have to create some routing tables for my router/firewall
You must specify what make/model of your firewall. Some have a web-only interface and some do not.
My linksys, for example, has a button on the web page to "Show Routing Table" that opens another window with the route table shown pretty much the same format as the DOS route print command.
You can format a table anyway you like with the following columns

Destination Network        subnet mask         gateway    Interface
