I see the following route in the pix configuration. It seems that a few of them are not required. Would there be any reason to have all of these routes? For example, I see this route
route inside 10.176.0.0 255.240.0.0 192.168.22.3 1
Then I have the following
route inside 10.176.0.0 255.255.254.0 192.168.22.3 1
route inside 10.177.0.0 255.255.252.0 192.168.22.3 1
route inside 10.182.0.0 255.252.0.0 192.168.22.3 1
route inside 10.188.0.0 255.252.0.0 192.168.22.3 1
Wouldn't the first route cover these?

Yes

The first route would cover 10.176.0.0 - 10.191.255.255

Exactly. I understand that part, thank you. I was wondering if there would be any reason why the other routes would be used. Since they are staic routes, someone put them in there manually and I'm just not understnading why? I didn't want to delete them if they are needed for some odd reason.

They wouldn't be used.  The first line would encompass them.  From what I remember, once a packet finds a rule that it applies to it, it uses that rule.

Thank you. I thought maybe I was missing something here. I know it will take the more specific route but they are all going to the same IP so...Oh well, I'm deleting them.
