A routing decision is the process where a network device identifies which interface and gateway should be used to forward packets for a specific destination. This decision can be made by using dynamic routing protocols or static entries configured on such devices. This chapter covers the different routing capabilities of Cisco ASA. Cisco ASA supports static route entries, Routing Information Protocol (RIP), and Open Shortest Path First (OSPF). This chapter also covers IP multicast routing capabilities.
