Newbie question...

Just got our routing tables set right in our lab. Need these routes to be static. Can you tell me how to set these routes to be permanent so that they won't go away during reboot?

Our routing tables for our two RHL9 servers look like this...

GOLDCOIN

207.192.10.0 * 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 eth1
207.192.75.0 * 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 eth1
192.168.10.0 trojan.thompson 255.255.255.0 UG 0 0 0 eth1
192.168.75.0 * 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 eth0
169.254.0 0 * 255.255.0.0 U 0 0 0 eth1
127.0.0.0 * 255.0.0.0 U 0 0 0 lo
default goldcoin.thompson 0.0.0.0 UG 0.0.0 eth1

TROJAN

207.192.10.0 * 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 eth1
207.192.75.0 * 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 eth1
192.168.10.0 * 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 eth0
192.168.75.0 goldcoin.thompson 255.255.255.0 UG 0 0 0 eth1
169.254.0.0 * 255.255.0.0 U 0 0 0 eth1
127.0.0.0 * 255.0.0.0 U 0 0 0 lo
default Trojan.thompson 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 eth1

Thanks in advance...

you can store all the commands that you used to setup this whole routing table in a bash script, like:

---code----
#!/bin/bash

route add ....
route add ....

----code----

and then call this script from your /etc/rc.d/rc.local script. This is an easier way to do it if u r not comfortable with modifying the system config files.

you can just put the commands in /etc/rc.local and the routes will be there just add lines like these
/sbin/route add ......
at the end of rc.local
