Refer to the exhibit. The Branch Router has an OSPF neighbor relationship with the HQ router over the 18.104.22.168/30 network. The 22.214.171.124/30 network link should serve as a backup when the OSPF link goes down. The floating static route command ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 S0/1/1 100 was issued on Branch and now traffic is using the backup link even when the OSPF link is up and functioning. Which change should be made to the static route command so that traffic will only use the OSPF link when it is up?
- Add the next hop neighbor address of 126.96.36.199.
- Change the administrative distance to 1.
- Change the destination network to 188.8.131.52.
- Change the administrative distance to 120.
Answers Explanation & Hints:
The problem with the current floating static route is that the administrative distance is set too low. The administrative distance will need to be higher than that of OSPF, which is 110, so that the router will only use the OSPF link when it is up.
