How do I change the default gateway in SCO Unixware. I've heard that it is a dynamic change but that doesn't appear to be the case.

That link is for OpenServer but it is close to what you need to do for UnixWare

From the command prompt type in :
route add default 192.9.200.250 (replace that with the real ip you want to be the default)

Now go the the /etc/rc2.d directory
Do a listing of all the files in that directory. In all my Unixware pc's the highest number is S80.
Create a file called something like S90dg. After the S90 you can put anything you want, But the S and the number are important.
In the file add the same as you typed in at the command prompt, in my example the file would contain
route add default 192.9.200.250

Now whenever you reboot it will process all the S files in order and will reestablish the default Gateway.

Hes is correct,but I think you can also add the default route to /etc/tcp file rather than create a file in /etc/rc2.d .If you add a file in rc2.d just make sure the "S" is capital.
