I have used Ubuntu since Ubuntu 8.10; today I'm working with Ubuntu 12.04 Server.
I am having difficulty keeping static routes on booting. I would usually put the route commands
/sbin/route add -net <IP>/<MASK> <GW> dev <ethX>
/etc/rc.local or I would create a file (named
routes) inside the directory
/etc/network/if-up/, but I notice that on Ubuntu 12.04 it isn't working.
If I type the commands in the shell, they work, but the same commands don't work when they are in the specified file.
I already tried to change the file name to other names thinking that my file name (
routes) could be erroneous in Ubuntu 12.04, but that also did not work.
I notice also that command
/sbin/ifconfig works, less the
What changed in network set-up?
How can I define static routes on Ubuntu 12.04?
