ROUTE.CONF(5)               BSD File Formats Manual              ROUTE.CONF(5)

NAME
     route.conf -- static routes config file

DESCRIPTION
     The route.conf file is read by the staticroute rc.d script during system
     start-up and shutdown, and is intended for adding and removing static
     routes.

   FILE FORMAT
     Lines starting with a hash ('#') are comments and ignored.  Lines start-
     ing with a plus sign ('+') are run during start-up, while lines starting
     with a minus sign ('-') are run during system shutdown.  All other lines
     are passed to route(8).  During start-up, they are passed behind a
     ``route add -'' command and during shutdown behind a ``route delete -''
     command.

FILES
     /etc/route.conf     The route.conf file resides in /etc.

     /etc/rc.d/staticroute
                         rc.d(8) script that parses route.conf.

EXAMPLES
     In this example, if the staticroute script is enabled in rc.conf(5), IP
     forwarding is turned on during start-up, and a static route added for
     192.168.2.0.  During system shutdown, the route is removed and IP for-
     warding turned off.

           # Turn on/off IP forwarding.
           +sysctl -w net.inet.ip.forwarding=1
           -sysctl -w net.inet.ip.forwarding=0
           net 192.168.2.0 -netmask 255.255.255.0 192.168.150.2
