SUMMARY: saving route configuration

Hi managers,

My original question was how to store "route" configuration permanently,
both in Solaris and in SunOS.

Well, thanks to everyone who responded. There proved to be several ways of
doing this: In Solaris the "route add ....." command can be added as a
startup script (S.......) in the /etc/rc2.d location. In SunOS the command
can be added to the /etc/rc.local startup script. However, it is even more
simple just to create the file "defaultrouter" in the /etc location (valid
for both operating system versions). This file simply contains the hostname
of the router (which can be a Sun host with two network interfaces).

Best regards
