    Trouble with Administrative Distances in Floating Static Routes

    glutenfreegary New Member

      I have the below routes:

       

      ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 5.5.5.2 20 track WAN2-INTERNET-track

      ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 ppp 1 30 track WAN1-INTERNET-track

      ip route 2.2.2.0 255.255.255.0 ppp 1 10 track WAN1-INTERNET-track

      ip route 3.3.3.0 255.255.255.0 ppp 1 10 track WAN1-INTERNET-track

       

      Given that the bottom 2 routes are for specific subnets, I thought I had this configured for 2 options for default routes, where the 5.5.5.2 route would take precedence as the gateway of last resort because it has a lower administrative distance than the other default route, the PPP1.

       

      However, the PPP1 is currently showing as the gateway of last resort, and I confirmed my tracks are UP. Is this correct? Why is the PPP1 route the gateway of last resort?

       

      Thanks very much!
