adding default gateway on solaris 10

adding default gateway on solaris 10


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.


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.


Router IP:

vi /etc/defaultrouter

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    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.
