IPCop till today does not have a GUI to add static routes.

The manual method. You will have to do this every time IPCop is rebooted.

Now let’s make the route persistent across reboots. There are 2 files for this. Use either one depending on your needs.

You can add the route command at the end of the /etc/rc.d/rc.local file. The route will be added every time IPCop is rebooted but not everytime the interface is restarted. Good for a box with minimal changes.

[email protected]:~ # echo "route add -net gw netmask" >> /etc/rc.d/rc.local

The other way would be to add the route command at the end of the /etc/rc.d/rc.netaddress.up file. This will ensure that your routing table gets updated every time the interface is restarted.

[email protected]:~ # echo "route add -net gw netmask" >> /etc/rc.d/rc.netaddress.up

I personally use the latter.

To view your routing table run the “route” command.
