Add a Net With a Static Route

I have several static routes setup on my workstation. These routes are started at boot time. They are reliable because my network topology doesn't change often. If it does change, I know that I need to make modifications in the script.

Here's an example.

#vi /etc/rc3.d/S97static_routes
route add net 1
:wq! (quits and saves)

I just added the class C network via the router These IPs are only used for illustration purposes.

To manipulate the routing table
Route Add, Route Change, Route Delete, Route Monitor, Route Flush

on Solaris 10 and on, you can use routeadm(1M) to manage routing, instead of having to edit /etc/init.d/ script(s) manually.
