Routing and Directly Connected Interface

  • I'm using version 2.0.3.  I have a LAN interfaces with a single, directly-connected subnet.  I have a second LAN interface that routes to 300+ networks, including 10.x.x.x subnets.  Can I route out the second LAN interface without causing problems on the 10.5.200.x interface?  Is it good practice to do so?


  • You can, directly connected takes precedence over static or routes from routing protocols.
    I do it all the time, without problem, don't know if it's best practice, might depend on who you ask :D

    While it is best to avoid such overlaps, more specific routes do get considered first as SeventhSon mentioned. It should work fine.
