    i'm sorry guys that i don't have a cisco guru around to ask stupid questions, hence the reason for so many posts...

    does the routing table get flushed when using static routes (which are not set to permanent). i'm curious since i need to be sure an isdn backup is started once the routing table is empty.

    Correct me if I'm wrong (eric_stewart, kpare, and ifican) but I believe if you don't list your routes as permenant, they wash when the router is rebooted...

    Simple answer is a "static route" is a permanent route. However this can get really tricky because all routes are interface dependent. If the interface is up the route is present, if the interface is down it is not. If you need anymore help please ask, as it gives others reading the post a chance to learn something.
