Interface IP Address Question

Super99Super99 Posts: 274Member
I'm new to the Cisco world.
Would I be correct to say that if one does a show ip route that a /32 would be the IP of an interface?
I've attached pic, hopefully it worked.

    No, a /32 could be a locally configured static route or a routed learned via a routing protocol. The "C" and "L" along with "directly connected" tell you that it's an interface address. If you configured a static route pointing at a local interface, it would show up as "directly connected" but it would have an "S" indicating static route rather than the "L" or "C".

    In this case the /32 is a Local Host route (seen by the L) and the IP of an interface. As Ed said, a /32 is not always a host route and could also be a Connected interface, static route or route from another protocol.

    So if I'm understanding this correctly.
    C is directly connected, fa 2/0
    L is directly connected, fa 2/0
    Means that this router is directly connected to the network and can be reached via

    Yeah that will work.. The club or gang (subnet or network ID) that you belong to is the /27 address. You, the member is identified by the /32 address. That's my analogy.
