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,
       even if that machine does not have an /etc/notrouter file.

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