Static routes tell routing information that a networking device cannot learn automatically through other means. The need for static routing can arise in cases where RIP is disabled on the LAN or a remote network is beyond the one that is directly connected to a remote node.
A form of routing that has permanent routes between networks programmed into every route.
Static routing limits you to fixed routing tables, as opposed to dynamically updating the routing tables.
