This week’s reading focused on routing, from static to dynamic routing tables, iOS commands, ACLs and remote access. Answer the questions below, and then respond to at least two other posts.
- Which method of routing would you prefer, static routes or dynamic routes? Make sure to justify your choice. Then, consider extremely large networks that have thousands of routes. Would your preference change based on the scale of the network? At what point does static routing for all connected routes become unmanageable?
- Explain the administrative overhead of maintaining a standard ACL list versus an extended ACL list. Consider how standard ACLs must be placed in comparison to extended ACLs, and discuss an environment where one will be preferable over the other.
