Description Simon Matter 2003-01-27 15:42:34 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [de] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.22-6.2.3 i686)

Description of problem:
I want to create a static route and have put this into
eth0 net netmask gw

It simply doesn't work. While looking at the code, I'm wondering how it should
work but the docs in /usr/share/doc/initscripts-6.95/sysconfig.txt tell me that
what I'm trying to do is correct.

What is the correct way to define static routes now?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. configure eth0 with
2. create static route in /etc/sysconfig/static-routes
3. reboot (or do appropriate steps...)

Actual Results:  no static route has been added to the routing table

Expected Results:  a static route should have been added
