Looking for examples of using a vlan for the next hop with the ip route command, an example would be:
6509 switch with vlan 100 received traffic from IP address 131.18.25.2 255.255.255.0 and is sent out a vlan interface, I'm wanting to know how an explanation of how this works and some examples, perfer labs as examples?

Thanks,
Dave

Do you mean specifying the VLAN interface instead of the next hop when creating a static route?
That would be a... bad idea. Since a VLAN interface is connected to a multi-access network, it wouldn't work. The only time a route should use an interface instead of a next hop address is when it's connected to a point-to-point network (as in only two hosts).
