How do I add a default gateway in System V, Release 4 UNIX?

Hello,
I need to set a default gateway in my old UNIX box. The OS is System 5, Release 4.
My UNIX is pretty weak and any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Without a better idea of the OS version, e.g. Supplier, output of uname -a,  it's hard to give any more detailed info on the syntax of the `route` command or how to set it permanently.

uname -a gives me (my company name) 4.0 3.0 3360, 3430 Pentium
This was originally an NCR server. I believe it is version 3.0

Hope that helps...

I've never touched NCR Unix, but from http://bhami.com/rosetta.html#networking - The file /etc/inet/defaultrouter should contain the details of the default router;  The page also implies that the tcpconfig command can be used to set this info, if you don't want to edit the file directly.

It's worth checking the man pages for "route", "tcpconfig" and "defaultrouter" to see if there is a full explanation. Online documentation for MP-RAS is available at http://www.info.ncr.com/eCRM-OSHW-BrowseBy-Results.cfm?pl=&PID=&title=&release=&pl=Software%20-%20MP-RAS&sbrn=3 - Personally, I'd download the lot and browse it for info. A quick scan through some of those docs suggests that there is a system admin utility that allows you to do a lot of the configuration, but info on networking is sketchy

/sbin/route add 0 1.2.3.4
in addition to setting the default in config files (replace 1.2.3.4 with your gateway 0 means all the world outside my subnet)
