       route  [-V] [--version] [-h] [--help]

       This program is obsolete. For replacement check ip route.

       Route  manipulates  the  kernel's  IP routing tables.  Its primary use is to set up static
       routes to specific hosts or networks via an interface after it has  been  configured  with
       the ifconfig(8) program.

       When  the  add  or del options are used, route modifies the routing tables.  Without these
       options, route displays the current contents of the routing tables.

       -A family
              use the specified address family (eg `inet'). Use route --help for a full list. You
              can use -6 as an alias for --inet6 and -4 as an alias for -A inet

       -F     operate  on  the kernel's FIB (Forwarding Information Base) routing table.  This is
              the default.

       -C     operate on the kernel's routing cache.

       -v     select verbose operation.

       -n     show numerical addresses instead of trying to determine symbolic host  names.  This
              is  useful if you are trying to determine why the route to your nameserver has van-

       -e     use netstat(8)-format for displaying the routing table.  -ee will generate  a  very
              long line with all parameters from the routing table.

       del    delete a route.

       add    add a new route.

       target the  destination network or host. You can provide IP addresses in dotted decimal or
              host/network names.

       -net   the target is a network.

       -host  the target is a host.

       netmask NM
              when adding a network route, the netmask to be used.

       gw GW  route packets via a gateway.  NOTE: The specified gateway must be reachable  first.
              This  usually  means  that you have to set up a static route to the gateway before-
              hand. If you specify the address of one of your local interfaces, it will  be  used
              to  decide  about the interface to which the packets should be routed to. This is a
              BSDism compatibility hack.

       metric M
              set the metric field in the routing table (used by routing daemons) to M.

       mss M  sets MTU (Maximum Transmission Unit) of the route to M bytes.  Note that  the  cur-
              rent implementation of the route command does not allow the option to set the Maxi-
              mum Segment Size (MSS).

       window W
              set the TCP window size for connections over this route to W bytes. This  is  typi-
              cally  only  used  on AX.25 networks and with drivers unable to handle back to back

       irtt I set the initial round trip time (irtt) for TCP connections over  this  route  to  I
              milliseconds  (1-12000).  This is typically only used on AX.25 networks. If omitted
              the RFC 1122 default of 300ms is used.

       reject install a blocking route, which will force a route lookup to  fail.   This  is  for
              example  used to mask out networks before using the default route.  This is NOT for

       mod, dyn, reinstate
              install a dynamic or modified route. These flags are for diagnostic  purposes,  and
              are generally only set by routing daemons.

       dev If force the route to be associated with the specified device, as the kernel will oth-
              erwise try to determine the device on its own (by checking already existing  routes
              and  device  specifications,  and where the route is added to). In most normal net-
              works you won't need this.

              If dev If is the last option on the command line, the word dev may be  omitted,  as
              it's the default. Otherwise the order of the route modifiers (metric - netmask - gw
              - dev) doesn't matter.

       route add -net netmask dev lo
              adds the normal loopback entry, using netmask  and  associated  with  the
              "lo"  device  (assuming  this  device  was  previously set up correctly with ifcon-

       route add -net netmask dev eth0
              adds a route to the local network 192.56.76.x via "eth0".  The word  "dev"  can  be
              omitted here.

       route del default
              deletes  the  current  default  route, which is labeled "default" or in the
              destination field of the current routing table.

       route add default gw mango-gw
              adds a default route (which will be used if no other route matches).   All  packets
              using  this route will be gatewayed through "mango-gw". The device which will actu-
              ally be used for that route depends on how we can reach  "mango-gw"  -  the  static
              route to "mango-gw" will have to be set up before.

       route add ipx4 sl0
              Adds  the  route to the "ipx4" host via the SLIP interface (assuming that "ipx4" is
              the SLIP host).

       route add -net netmask gw ipx4
              This command adds the net "192.57.66.x" to be gatewayed through the former route to
              the SLIP interface.

       route add -net netmask dev eth0
              This is an obscure one documented so people know how to do it. This sets all of the
              class D (multicast) IP routes to go via "eth0". This is the correct normal configu-
              ration line with a multicasting kernel.

       route add -net netmask reject
              This installs a rejecting route for the private network "10.x.x.x."

       The output of the kernel routing table is organized in the following columns

              The destination network or destination host.

              The gateway address or '*' if none set.

              The  netmask  for the destination net; '' for a host destination and
              '' for the default route.

       Flags  Possible flags include
              U (route is up)
              H (target is a host)
              G (use gateway)
              R (reinstate route for dynamic routing)
              D (dynamically installed by daemon or redirect)
              M (modified from routing daemon or redirect)
              A (installed by addrconf)
              C (cache entry)
              !  (reject route)

       Metric The 'distance' to the target (usually counted in hops). It is not  used  by  recent
              kernels, but may be needed by routing daemons.

       Ref    Number of references to this route. (Not used in the Linux kernel.)

       Use    Count  of  lookups  for  the route.  Depending on the use of -F and -C this will be
              either route cache misses (-F) or hits (-C).

       Iface  Interface to which packets for this route will be sent.

       MSS    Default maximum segment size for TCP connections over this route.

       Window Default window size for TCP connections over this route.

       irtt   Initial RTT (Round Trip Time). The kernel uses this to guess  about  the  best  TCP
              protocol parameters without waiting on (possibly slow) answers.

       HH (cached only)
              The number of ARP entries and cached routes that refer to the hardware header cache
              for the cached route. This will be -1 if a hardware address is not needed  for  the
              interface of the cached route (e.g. lo).

       Arp (cached only)
              Whether or not the hardware address for the cached route is up to date.



       Route    for    Linux    was    originally    written    by    Fred    N.    van   Kempen,
       <waltje AT> and then modified by Johannes Stille and Linus  Torvalds  for
       pl15.  Alan Cox added the mss and window options for Linux 1.1.22. irtt support and merged
       with netstat from Bernd Eckenfels.

Warning: date(): It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected the timezone 'UTC' for now, but please set date.timezone to select your timezone. in /home/project-web/phpunixman/htdocs/index.php on line 306
