From the drawing the host only has 1 interface, so yeah that would be the out interface Depending on the OS the route could be shown via the IP on the interface, or could be shown as the actual interface.
What OS is on the host would be the only way to be sure on the proper syntax of creating the route on the host.
So in that table can you see the routing tables of the routers shown? Is there any mention of routing protocol between them sharing their routes? If not its hard to say the proper route out. Which way does R2 route to network host is connected too, you would like to assume least hops - but you can not be sure without some more details.
If you were routing to the 192.16.7 network via r5, what would you be talking to in that network. A host, what routing table does it have? Because if it only has a default route out R3, you most likely run into a asynchronous routing problem with hosts talking to 192.16.7 from 194.17.21
As typical these sorts of questions/exams have little to do with a real life example.
Curious to see what the documented correct answer it - its always fun to ask how they got there with what is normally a lack of actual information given.
Then you have to love the just pulling networks out of their ass to use in diagrams, 126.96.36.199/10 owned by china mobile China Mobile Communications Corporation. APNIC, and then a Sweden TV network it seems RIPE..
Come on how hard is it to come up with a realistic diagram and question that reflects what might really happen in the realworld Go to the full post
