Updating routing tables in linux
It is electronic table that is stored in a router or a networked computer.The routing table stores the routes (and in some cases, metrics associated with those routes) to particular network destinations.
What exactly is the routing table in Windows and Linux, why is it useful and how can we make sense of it?
Your host adds it as an entry inside its local record known as the ARP cache.
This is so the next time it needs to get off the network it doesn’t have to bother everyone by yelling for that MAC address.
Either of the two below commands can be used to set/delete static routes.
This page I am not referring about how to add/delete static route but would like to explain how to flush the routing table using “ip route” command.
