Contents of /etc/sysconfig/networking/profiles/default/route-eth0



On FC2.

I've seen discussion online that indicates these files should contain things like

	GATEWAY0=x.x.x.x
	ADDRESS0=x.x.x.x

and I've seen things that say it should contain arguments to route add (from /usr/share/doc/initscripts-7.53/sysconfig.txt).

/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/route-<interface-name>

  Contains lines that are arguments to "/sbin/ip route add"
  For example:

192.168.2.0/24 dev ppp0

adds a network route to the 192.168.2.0 network through ppp0.

I think the GUI configuration tools have set up route-eth0 as in the first case, but that doesn't seem to set the route properly on boot (the active counterparts in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts contain the same stuff).


Now, I know I can make this stuff work by adding lines to rc.local, but I'd like to do it "the right way", so that GUI tools reflect the state, and people and processes other than myself can figure out what's going on (not to mention, when I revisit this in 6 months, I will be able to look up somewhere how I did all this, rather than remembering my specific hacks).

Can someone clarify what's supposed to be in these files? In this particular case, I'm setting up this box as a router (NAT, firewall, VPN stuff, etc). It's working, but the default route to the outside world always has to be entered by hand, rather than coming up automatically at boot).

Thanks!
