LKBEN11195: Howto add static routes on your ubuntu or debian system


You need to define a static route for network connectivity


This is by design


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:

/sbin/route add -net netmaks gw
/sbin/route add -net netmaks gw

Make shure the file can be executed as a script.
