Manual:Simple Static Routing
Let's look on the simplest network example, when we have one router for different computers.
Computers are connected to router directly. Generally packets are sent by the simple path, for example client 192.168.0.2 wants to open one web page. Packets path is:
- 192.168.0.2 checks routing table, web page does not belong to any DST-address network, which is present in /ip route table;
- 192.168.0.2 uses default gateway, it is 192.168.0.1 the address of the router. Default gateway network is 0.0.0.0/0 or everything except destinations for other present routes;
