This is just a quick question I am wondering out of curiosity.

When I set up a network in packet tracer, why does "show IP route" show the network address (example: and not the IP address assigned to the end device (example: ?

It's probably not important, but I just want to understand how it works.


show ip route command shows the static routing assigned manually

If you do show ip int brief or show ip interface brief it will show to ip assigned to a the interfaces on that router.

  • show ip route shows much more than just routes which are static and manually configured. It shows all routes in the routing table. – Teun Vink Mar 22 at 10:49
