linuxconf won't create route to host on specific interface
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:55 EDT
Want to create a route on a specific interface for use with proxy arp
/etc/sysconfig/static_routes needs an entry like:
eth1 host 142.90.n.n
which is handled by /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup-routes
Linuxconf cannot make this, and does not parse an existing entry
under "routing and gateways".
Every time I use Linuxconf to edit any parameter, my routing table is EMPTIED,
with the exception of the localhost. I then lose all network and internet
connectivity, and it is impossible to add a route via the route daemon. The
only solution I have found is to use netconfig. HOWEVER, watch out because the
default gateway and nameserver are auto-filled incorrectly!
Closing because we don't ship linuxconf anymore
