       defaultrouter - configuration file for default router(s)


       The /etc/defaultrouter file specifies a IPv4 host's default router(s).

       The format of the file is as follows:


       The  /etc/defaultrouter	file  can  contain  the  IP addresses or hostnames of one or more
       default routers, with each entry on its own line. If you use hostnames, each hostname must
       also  be  listed in the local /etc/hosts file, because no name services are running at the
       time that defaultrouter is read.

       Lines beginning with the ``#'' character are treated as comments.

       The default routes listed in this file replace those added by the kernel  during  diskless
       booting. An empty /etc/defaultrouter file will cause the default route added by the kernel
       to be deleted.

       Use of a default route, whether received from a DHCP server  or	from  /etc/defaultrouter,
       prevents  a  machine  from  acting as an IPv4 router. You can use routeadm(1M) to override
       this behavior.

       /etc/defaultrouter    Configuration file containing the hostnames or IP addresses  of  one
			     or more default routers.
