route and netmask - proper syntax is?

hi,

below is my current rc.inet1 script (slackware rc.d setup).  neither
routing.txt nor policy-routing.txt seem to provide workable solutions
to why my setup does not work with newer kernels.

with 2.0.28, 'route -v' gives this (sorry for the long lines):

Kernel IP routing table
Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags Metric Ref    Use Iface
localnet        *               255.255.255.0   U     0      0      499 eth0
loopback        *               255.0.0.0       U     0      0        9 lo
default         155.100.229.127 0.0.0.0         UG    1      0    18566 eth0

however, with 2.1.24 i do not get the loopback (lo) set up.

what is the correct syntax?

thanks,

#! /bin/sh

# rc.inet1      This shell script boots up the base INET system.

HOSTNAME=`cat /etc/HOSTNAME`

# Attach the loopback device.
/sbin/ifconfig lo 127.0.0.1

/sbin/route add -net 127.0.0.0

# IF YOU HAVE AN ETHERNET CONNECTION, use these lines below to configure the
# eth0 interface. If you're only using loopback or SLIP, don't include the
# rest of the lines in this file.

# Edit for your setup.
IPADDR="155.100.229.31"       # REPLACE with YOUR IP address!
NETMASK="255.255.255.0"       # REPLACE with YOUR netmask!
NETWORK="155.100.229.0"       # REPLACE with YOUR network address!
BROADCAST="155.100.229.255"   # REPLACE with YOUR broadcast address, if you
                                # have one. If not, leave blank and edit below.
GATEWAY="155.100.229.127"     # REPLACE with YOUR gateway address!

/sbin/ifconfig eth0 ${IPADDR} broadcast ${BROADCAST} netmask ${NETMASK}

# Uncomment these to set up your IP routing table.

/sbin/route add -net ${NETWORK} netmask ${NETMASK}

/sbin/route add default gw ${GATEWAY} metric 1

# start ndc here for nameserver

/usr/sbin/ndc start

# End of rc.inet1

route and netmask - proper syntax is?

Loopback:

Quote:>/sbin/route add -net 127.0.0.0

/sbin/route add -net 127.0.0.0 netmask 255.0.0.0 lo

Quote:>/sbin/route add -net ${NETWORK} netmask ${NETMASK}
>/sbin/route add default gw ${GATEWAY} metric 1

/sbin/route add -net ${NETWORK} netmask ${NETMASK} eth0
/sbin/route add default gw ${GATEWAY} netmask 0.0.0.0 metric 1 eth0

Hope this helps.
