adding default gateway on solaris 10

adding default gateway on solaris 10

(OP)

ok i'm quite new and have just installed a solaris 10 vmwar eand need to add a default gateway so when it boots i can connect remotely - at the moment i keep having to add the gateway via command line each time.

thanks,

RE: adding default gateway on solaris 10

Add the IP address to /etc/defaultrouter (create the file if it doesn't already exist).

RE: adding default gateway on solaris 10



vi /etc/defaultrouter and add the IPADDRESS of your router.

EXAMPLE:

Router IP:   192.168.1.1


vi /etc/defaultrouter
192.168.1.1

reboot to test.


RE: adding default gateway on solaris 10

or ..
netstat -r     shows the current routing table

route add destination gateway
eg route add default 172.16.96.9    adds a default gateway

netstat -r will now show your 'new' default gateway.

You should also add this command to one of the /etc/rc.n directories so that is is set up after a reboot.
