Do you need your server act as a router? I am not sure you want to do that. In this case what are your needs ?

Actually, the service svc:/network/routing/route:default has nothing to do with your system acting as a router,
a;though you should probably have it running is you are acting as a router.

No, what the svc:/network/routing/route:default is for is to allow you system to do *dynamic* routing. It accepts
routing packets from the network and uses them to update the routing tables. Typically, a system only needs to know about one router, that being the so called "default router". This is the router that all packets not destined for the local subnet will be sent. This router is expected to know how to route the packets from there.  Because the
system might only need to know this one router, it is often configured in the /etc/gateways file.

However, if there is more than one router on your network, or the routers might change, then you want to run the
routing daemon, which maintains the routing tables on the system. This service controls the in.routed daemon. The daemon waits and listens for announcements on the network from the routers and updates the tables accordingly.
