Question routing table (netstat -rn)

Is ther a way to retain say, a default gateway entered in a routing table after a reboot? I end up always having to re-enter my default gateway after I reboot my system.

What Unix are you using?
If you are unsure, post the results of the command "uname -a"...

if your are using sun solaris you need to create a
file called hostname.(interface name) in /etc directory

this can be done by issuing touch /etc/hostname.hme0 that's if your interface name hme0

to find out what your interface name is issue
ifconfig -a

or touch /etc/hostname.qfe0
that's if your interface name is qfe0

or touch /etc/hostname.eri0
that's if your interface name is eri0

finally edit the file /etc/hostname.(interface name) and put an entry of your hostname

the next time you reboot your server the routing
table should be unchange
