I have two ethernet interfaces in my computer, which is running Ubuntu 9.04. Both interfaces sport static IPs, but use separate gateways. My
/etc/network/interfaces file looks something like this:
auto eth0 eth1 iface eth0 inet static address 10.0.0.5 netmask 255.255.255.0 gateway 10.0.0.1 iface eth1 inet static address 192.168.2.5 netmask 255.255.255.0 gateway 192.168.2.1
I want to have all traffic going to the internet-at-large run through
eth0, but it seems to want to go through
eth1. Is there a way that I can channel my general outbound traffic through
eth0 instead and only use
eth1 for traffic to its subnet?
The answer should be persistent; that is to say, it should survive reboot without a superuser needing to run a command after restart.
EDIT: as requested, here is the output of my
route -n command:
