We know routing table looks something like this .
Question : We go with larger subnet mask in case of two matches. !! Why ? I know that's fact and called https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Longest_prefix_match !! What is already setup in the backend side so that we're choosing one with the larger subnet mask??
2) I guess this question has some relation with the previous one.
If i have to divide a network in 5 unequal subnets. then which is the correct method ?
In computer networking, source routing, also called path addressing, allows a sender of a packet to partially or completely specify the route of the packet takes through the network. In contrast, in non-source routing protocols, routers in the network determine the path based on the packet's destination.
