I understand what a default gateway is. A Default Gateway is essentially the gateway into or out of a network -- and it is used when a station on the network is unable to resolve and route to an IP address using its internal routing table.
OK, so with that in mind, what would happen if I say, tried to configure a network without a Default Gateway? What would happen then? Could I make the PCs access the Internet without having to enter a Default Gateway setting?
The reason I ask is purely out of interest after reading http://www.petri.co.il/mcse_system_administrator_networking_interview_questions.htm
. About six questions in this question is posed regarding Default Gateways, and I am intrigued as to what the answer is.
