Symptom

You need to define a static route for network connectivity

Cause

This is by design

Solution

To add a route you can just use the route add command. After rebooting the server this route will be gone. To add it permanently you can do the following:

create a file static-routes under /etc/network/if-up.d

The contents of the file should look like this:

#!/bin/sh
/sbin/route add -net 172.23.41.0 netmaks 255.255.255.0 gw 192.168.129.194
/sbin/route add -net 172.23.42.0 netmaks 255.255.255.0 gw 192.168.129.194


Make shure the file can be executed as a script.
