You can use the route command to manually enter information into the network routing tables. By interpreting the network address of the Destination variable, which can be supplied either by symbolic name or numeric address, the route command distinguishes between routes to hosts and routes to networks.
Routing tables are usually used in networks to distribute network traffic. A routing table contains information on how packets should be routed to the next hop.
The debug IP rip command displays the Routing Information Protocol (RIP) updates that are being delivered and received on the router. It ensures that the updates are broadcast rather than multicast.
It instructs the router to forward any packets received for the destination [that we specified in the previous argument] to this next hop neighbour IP address. The second command does the same thing as the first, but in a different method. Instead of specifying the next hop IP address, it specifies the exit interface.
