Route maps are similar to access lists; they both have criteria for matching the details of certain packets and an action of permitting or denying those packets. This chapter explains the basics of Route Maps. Included are sample exercises to help you practice administration and use of Route Maps.A Network Administrator’s View of Multiservice Networks
Multiservice networks provide more than one distinct communications service type over the same physical infrastructure. Multiservice implies not only the existence of multiple traffic types within the network, but also the ability of a single network to support all of these applications without compromising quality of service (QoS) for any of them. This chapter covers multiservice networks in detail from the network administrator’s viewpoint.
Working for Apples: A Windows Administrator’s Guide to Serving Macs
Are you Mac-savvy? Many Windows administrators and technicians have never had to support Macs on their networks, so the idea of suddenly having a handful of Mac workstations might seem really challenging. Luckily for you, it’s an easier task than you probably think. Ryan Faas gives you a simple guide to supporting Mac workstations and Mac users within your Windows network.
I really enjoyed this article. Clearly shows the benefits of having a Cisco router. ACL + Router maps are really savy if you know how to deal with them.
So…it’s now news that you can use a route-map on a Cisco to match a class of traffic via an ACL then set the next hop….
Welcome back to the year 1997….
Sure, it’s great and all, but honestly, this is Routing 101….

If you are into networks (expecial the Cisco type) you should grab this book. Jeff Doyle is an excelent author and dives deep into routing protocols and different methods. It has tcpdumps of the routing protocol so that you can see how an update differs from a new route. Truely terrific.
I have read both Vol 1 and 2 and just bought Vol 1 2nd Ed.
Kelson: Yes setting next-hop in a route map may seem easy to you, but from my experiances in #cisco on freenode it is a very frequently asked question. Not to mention route-maps are used heavily in redistribution and BGP which are not routing-101 topics.
