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.
