IP classless routing for the router
Depends on the IOS version
This command enables routing based on “classless” addresses. With classless routing, packets can be routed if the router knows a route for a supernet of the addressee. Without classless addressing, the packet is discarded if it arrives at the router and there is no network route for its destination. Assume that a packet arrives with the destination of 10.10.1.5, but we have routes only for 10.10.2.0/24, 10.10.3.0/24, and 10.10.0.0/16. With IP classless routing enabled, the router forwards the packet to the 10.10.0.0/16 network because 10.10.0.0/16 is the best matching supernet of 10.10.1.5.
