setting up the default route

setting up the default route

Post by Greg Lewi » Sun, 31 Dec 1899 09:00:00

I am using kppp to connect to my ISP. Even though I select "Set as
Default Route" in the setup, when I do a route after my connection, the
default is still to the ethernet card. Even if I supply the defaultroute
option specifically to kppp (the is a special window for options), it
still doesn't work, and I have to su root and add the default manually:

route add default gw 128.x.x.x dev ppp0

Any thoughts of how to get around this?

1. Two interfaces: Set default default route?

OK, I have two interfaces, one slow, one fast.  I want to use the fast
one as the default (obviously), but I need to have the other one
available for some people that can only reach me through that one.
How can I tell the machine to use the fast one by default.  Am I
correct in saying that if I nix the default route for the slow
connection that people from the slow net that are not on the same
subnet would not be able to contact me?
