Yes. > Neither /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup-routes > nor /etc/rc.d/init.d/network use it !? They do, but: 1. /etc/rc.d/init.d/network in older versions of Owl had a typo that prevented this from working. The bug was fixed over a year ago: * Tue May 24 2005 (GalaxyMaster) <galaxy-at-owl.openwall.com> 0.24-owl1 - Fixed a typo in /etc/rc.d/init.d/network which used to break the static routes logic. Thanks to DaNuk <noc at spacenet.ru> for pointing it out. You didn't mention what version of Owl you're using, but I am guessing that it's an old one. 2. /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup-routes only takes care of routes that are specific to a particular network interface. Your example route would be setup by the "network" script rather than by "ifup-routes". -- Alexander Peslyak <solar at openwall.com> GPG key ID: B35D3598 fp: 6429 0D7E F130 C13E C929 6447 73C3 A290 B35D 3598 http://www.openwall.com - bringing security into open computing environments Was I helpful?
