Configuring Route Preferences

A route preference is a weight added to the route that influences the determination of the best path for traffic to reach its destination. When importing or adding a route to the routing table, the virtual router adds a preference value—determined by the protocol by which the route is learned—to the route. A low preference value (a number closer to 0) is preferable to a high preference value (a number further from 0). In a virtual router, you can set the preference value for routes according to protocol.

To change the preference value for a protocol, enter a new value for the protocol in the Route Preferences configuration screen.
