how routing table is initialized

Hi, how routing tables are initialized when linux starts? what scripts or config files should I look at?

1 Solution
Have a look here: http://www.rapierbit.org/linux/ethernet.html

Basically, /etc/rc.d/init.d/network script will be the first to go on boot, it will call /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup for all the devices and during that route will be added.  If depends on the /etc/sysconfig/network, /etc/sysconfig/networking/devices/* files.  I am using Fedora Core here.. so if you are using other distro, you should find out the respective files..
