I have a linux dial-in server (mgetty & pppd) at head office which allow a linux box (mgetty & pppd) of remote site to dial-in via PSTN. The remote site is a network 172.22.13.0/24 and the linux box is act as a gateway (172.22.13.5) to head office.

When the connection is established, the head office server automatically has the route entry for 172.22.13.5, but require manually to add a route entry for 172.22.13.0/24.

The manually added route entry will be lost when the phone line is disconnected.

How to make the 172.22.13.0/24 route entry will not be lost or tell linux box to add it automatically when connected?

Thanks.

I believe you can arrainge for the route to be created in the  /etc/ppp/ip-up script on the dial-in server. It's been entirely too long since I needed to do this and I don't remember the exact details.

/etc/ppp/ip-up or /etc/ppp/ip-up.local is the place to do this
