defaultrouter(4)                 File Formats                 defaultrouter(4)



NAME
       defaultrouter - configuration file for default router(s)

SYNOPSIS
       /etc/defaultrouter

DESCRIPTION
       The /etc/defaultrouter file specifies a IPv4 host's default router(s).

       The format of the file is as follows:


       IP_address
       ...


       The  /etc/defaultrouter  file can contain the IP addresses or hostnames
       of one or more default routers, with each entry on its own line. If you
       use  hostnames,  each  hostname  must  also  be  listed  in  the  local
       /etc/hosts file, because no name services are running at the time  that
       defaultrouter is read.

       Lines beginning with the ``#'' character are treated as comments.

       The  default routes listed in this file replace those added by the ker-
       nel during diskless booting.  An  empty  /etc/defaultrouter  file  will
       cause the default route added by the kernel to be deleted.

       Use  of  a  default  route, whether received from a DHCP server or from
       /etc/defaultrouter, prevents a machine from acting as an  IPv4  router.
       You can use routeadm(1M) to override this behavior.

FILES
       /etc/defaultrouter              Configuration file containing the host-
                                       names or IP addresses of  one  or  more
                                       default routers.
