Simple Static Routing Experiment


In this experiment you will learn how to set up static routing with the route command. We will use the following network topology for this experiment:

Set Up

For this experiment you need a GENI account, ssh credentials, and the class VirtualBox image. You also need to set up the experiment with Flukes. If you do not already have this set up, go here for instructions on how to set up your account.


The goal of your final experiment is to setup the routing as indicated in Figure 1. You might want to review the slides on IPv4 addressing and routing (also chapter 4.4 in the book)

After you have set up the routing correctly, packets from A send to IP address on node C should be routed via node B. Packets from A send to IP address on node C should be directly forwarded to C. You can verify this by performing a traceroute to the respective IP addresses of node C from node A. Since we’re not using a routing algorithm but set the route statically, we will make use of the “route” command. The following link gives you an introduction on how to use the command:
