Add some data here
# To display routing table IP addresses instead of host names: route -n # To add a default gateway: route add default gateway 192.168.0.1 # To add the normal loopback entry, using netmask 255.0.0.0 and associated with # the "lo" device (assuming this device was previously set up correctly with # ifconfig(8)): route add -net 127.0.0.0 netmask 255.0.0.0 dev lo # To add a route to the local network 192.56.76.x via "eth0". The word "dev" can be omitted here: route add -net 188.8.131.52 netmask 255.255.255.0 dev eth0 # To delete the current default route, which is labeled "default" or 0.0.0.0 in the destination field of the current routing table: route del default # To add a default route (which will be used if no other route matches). All # packets using this route will be gatewayed through "mango-gw". The device # which will actually be used for that route depends on how we can reach # "mango-gw" - the static route to "mango-gw" will have to be set up before: route add default gw mango-gw # To add the route to the "ipx4" host via the SLIP interface (assuming that "ipx4" is the SLIP host): route add ipx4 sl0 # To add the net "192.57.66.x" to be gateway through the former route to the SLIP interface: route add -net 184.108.40.206 netmask 255.255.255.0 gw ipx4 # To install a rejecting route for the private network "10.x.x.x.": route add -net 10.0.0.0 netmask 255.0.0.0 reject # This is an obscure one documented so people know how to do it. This sets all # of the class D (multicast) IP routes to go via "eth0". This is the correct # normal configuration line with a multicasting kernel: route add -net 220.127.116.11 netmask 240.0.0.0 dev eth0
