Hi! Guys,

How will i add my static route permanently to my linux box i have encountered problem that everytime i reboot my machine static route has gone. That's is why i have to re type it again.

# /sbin/route add -net 192.168.5.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 gw 192.168.0.3

ThankS in advance.

AOA,

Dear son33,

Two methods by which it can be done are as follows
Method 1.

echo "/sbin/route add -net 192.168.5.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 gw 192.168.0.3" >> /etc/rc.local

Easy and quick


Method 2.

Create a file /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/route-ethX where X corresponds to the network interface you wish to use the alternate route. This file deals with three fields: GATEWAY, NETMASK, and ADDRESS. Each field should have a number appended to it indicating what route it relates to. The example below shows two static routes configured for the eth0 network interface.

touch /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/route-eth0
vi /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/route-eth0

GATEWAY=192.168.0.3
NETMASK=255.255.255.0
ADDRESS=192.168.5.0

save and exit by :wq

then

service network restart


Now its up to you which method will you choose.

Note: Method 2 only works on RedHat.

add your route command in /etc/rc.local

/sbin/route add -net 192.168.5.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 gw 192.168.0.3

Hello :) ,

In addition to all above, please use this for changing route permenantly
------------
--> vi /etc/conf.d/net and add these lines

routes_eth1=(
"192.168.5.0 via 192.168.0.3"
)

I hope this will solve your issue 8)
