Command:

show ipx route

Mode:

Router#


Syntax:

show ipx route [network] [default] [detailed]

Syntax Description:

network

(Optional) Number of the network whose routing table entry you want to display. This is an eight-digit hexadecimal number that uniquely identifies a network cable segment. It can be a number in the range 1 to FFFFFFFD. You do not need to specify leading zeros in the network number. For example, for the network number 000000AA, you can enter AA.

default

(Optional) Displays the default route. This is equivalent to specifying a value of FFFFFFFE for the argument network.

detailed

(Optional) Displays detailed route information.


Command Description:

To display the contents of the IPX routing table, use the show ipx route user EXEC command.


Examples:

The following is a sample of output from the show ipx route command:

Router#show ipx route


Codes: C - Connected primary network,    c - Connected secondary network
       S - Static, F - Floating static, L - Local (internal), W - IPXWAN

The table below describes the fields shown in the display.

Table: show ipx route Field Descriptions

Field Description

Codes

Codes defining how the route was learned.

L - Local

Internal network number.

C - Connected primary     network

Directly connected primary network.

c - connected secondary     network

Directly connected secondary network.

S - Static

Statically defined route via the ipx route command.

R - RIP

Route learned from a RIP update.

E - EIGRP

Route learned from an Enhanced IGRP (EIGRP) update.

W - IPXWAN

Directly connected route determined via IPXWAN.

8 Total IPX routes

Number of routes in the IPX routing table.

No parallel paths allowed

Maximum number of parallel paths for which the Cisco IOS software has been configured with the ipx maximum-paths command.

Novell routing algorithm variant in use

Indicates whether the Cisco IOS software is using the IPX-compliant routing algorithms (default).

Net 1

Network to which the route goes.

[3/2]

Delay/Metric. Delay is the number of IBM clock ticks (each tick is 1/18 seconds) reported to the destination network. Metric is the number of hops reported to the same network. Delay is used as the primary routing metric, and the metric (hop count) is used as a tie breaker.

via network.node

Address of a router that is the next hop to the remote network.

age

Amount of time (in hours, minutes, and seconds) that has elapsed since information about this network was last received.

uses

Number of times this network has been looked up in the route table. This field is incremented when a packet is process-switched, even if the packet is eventually filtered and not sent. As such, this field represents a fair estimate of the number of times a route gets used.

Ethernet0

Interface through which packets to the remote network will be sent.

(NOVELL-ETHER)

Encapsulation (frame) type. This is shown only for directly connected networks.

is directly connected

Indicates that the network is directly connected to the router.

When the Cisco IOS software generates an aggregated route, the show ipx route command displays a line item similar to the following:

NA      1000 FFFFF000 [**][**/06] via        0.0000.0000.0000,  163s, Nu0
 

In the following example, the router that sends the aggregated route also generates the aggregated route line item in its table. But the entry in the table points to the null interface (Nu0), indicating that if this aggregated route is the most-specific route when a packet is being forwarded, the router drops the packet instead.
