Configuration > Networking > Routing > Admin Distance
This tab shows values associated with various types of Admin Distance. Admin Distance (AD) is the route preference value assigned to dynamic routes, static routes, and directly connected routes. When the appliance’s Routes table has multiple routes to the same destination, the appliance uses the route with the lowest administrative distance.
The following table displays the values associated with various types of Admin Distance.
|Appliance||Name of the appliance.|
|Local||Manually configured route, or one learned from locally connected subnets.|
|EBGP||External BGP: exchanging routing information with a router outside the company-wide network.|
|IBGP||Internal BGP: exchanging routing information with a router inside the company-wide network.|
|Subnet Shared - Static Routes||Route learned from an EdgeConnect peer.|
|Subnet Shared - BGP Remote||Route shared from an EdgeConnect peer in an external network.|
|OSPF||Route learned from an OSPF (Open Shortest Path First) neighbor.|
|Subnet Shared - OSPF Remote||Route learned from an EdgeConnect peer.|
