[user@box ~]$ cd /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/
[user@box network-scripts]$ cat ifcfg-eth0
DEVICE=eth0
BOOTPROTO=static
IPADDR=10.190.3.105
NETMASK=255.255.255.192
GATEWAY=10.190.3.111

Open in new window


You can put the gateway in there for a device specific gateway, or you can add that same line to /etc/sysconfig/network to make it the default gateway.
