Subject:   defaultrouter in rc.conf not working
Message-ID:  <>

Next in thread | Raw E-Mail | Index | Archive | Help
Hello everybody,

I do have one net interface configured in rc.conf and I do have one defaultrouter="" entry.
But when booting the system I don't have a matching default route when I enter netstat -r, in fact I don't see any default route.
However when I add the default route by hand using route add default the route work.

I checked the rc.conf for typos, but found none. Can you give me a hint what else might be the problem? Why is FreeBSD not creating the default route on start?

Best regards,
