Chapter 6. Configuring Routing with the CLI

We have finally reached the important part of networking—routing. Routing allows communication between multiple logical networks. When configuring routing on the command line of Packet Tracer—similar to configuring on physical hardware—you'll find that Packet Tracer offers a GUI to configure static and RIP routing protocols. In addition to this, we'll also see how load balancing works using the simulation mode, which will help you understand things better.
