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).

Do this:

1. For interfaces where this box is the gateway (i.e. your internal interface is 192.168.1.1 and *that* is the gateway address for the LAN), do not set a GATEWAY line in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ethX.

2. For interfaces where this box is *not* the gateway, set the GATEWAY line in the ifcfg-ethX file.

        3. Set "GATEWAYDEV=eth0" in /etc/sysconfig/network.

Restart the network. You should be OK. If not, post the output of "route -n" and the contents of /etc/sysconfig/network plus the relevant ifcfg-ethX files. Make sure that firewall is cleared and disabled *before* you do this to avoid distractions.

Cheers,
