static route rules
I thought the prefix always had to be the same as the mask, it can't be shorter then what you provide in the route, i.e. you can't summarize it, that's what the summary-address command is for (i guess summarization is only limited to the routing protocols then?)
Why can i do ip route 192.168.6.0 255.255.254.0 fa0/0 ?
I would expect it would only accept 192.168.6.0 255.255.255.0
I expect to see inconsistent mask and address, but the router accepts the /23 route. One bit shorter though (255.255.252.0) and it does complain.
What are the exact rules for providing a static route?
