adding a route to the default gateway
Posted on 2002-05-24
I have Redhat 7.3 installed and I'm using KPPP to dial up my ISP. The ISP uses dynamic IP and so I get a new IP address when I connect.
The problem is opera/mail etc can't communicate with the internet until I open a console and type
route add default gw <ipaddress>
where ipaddress is the one given to me by the ISP.
I'm obviously doing something wrong.
Can anyone tell me how to set this up so it all happens automatically and correctly.
