Setting up a static routed IP internetwork
A static routed IP internetwork does not use routing protocols such as RIP for IP or OSPF to communicate routing information between routers. All of the routing information is stored in a static routing table on each router. You need to ensure that each router has the appropriate routes in its routing table so that traffic can be exchanged between any two endpoints on the IP internetwork.
