Description advax 2000-04-04 20:15:38 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
