what is static routing & dynamic routing?
Answer Hi, What is static and dynamic routing. Well, I guess first we need to explain what routing is. I’ll try to give the “thousand mile” high level overview. Networks – that is data networks – are made up of devices (like PC’s) that communicate between each other. These devices use protocols, or standards of communication, to accomplish this. A protocol is much like language. We use languages, like English, Spanish, German and so on, to convey our thoughts and ideas. Networked devices do the same using protocols such as TCP/IP (Transmissions Control Protocol) / (Internet Protocol) and others. TCP/IP is the most common. To keep things easy, Ill just review TCP/IP networks, theres actually a multitude of protocols (just like human language). Much like sending mail through the postal system, each device on a network has an address. This is typically referred to as the devices IP address. When you pull up a web page on the Internet, you type in the sites URL address in your web browser.
