I've been trying to understand what's the correct way to add a static route on a CentOS 6.x machine.
In some forums they say to create a file named
route-dev_name (for example route-eth0) with the relevant route and place it in
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts , in some forums they say the file should be named
static-routes , in both cases I'm unable to set a static route. It seems like in some CentOS releases it works only when naming the file
route-dev_name and in some it only works when naming the file
Can anyone please assist me?
This is the content of my route file:
192.168.20.0/24 via 192.168.20.253 dev eth0
Thanks in advance
