C60T-051Explanation:
Routing Table above display the information about the current routing table.
The Destinantion IP address is the IP address to which message is sent. Networks using the TCP/IP protocol route messages based on the IP address of the destination.

The subnet mask is a binary pattern that is stored in the client machine, server or router. It is matched with the IP address of a packet to determine which network segment the packet is destined for.

Next hop is a routing term that refers to the next closest router a packet can go through. More specifically, next hop is an IP address entry in a router’s routing table, which specifies the next closest/most optimal router in its routing path.

The hop count refers to the number of intermediate devices (like routers) through which data must pass between source and destination.
