Static routes specify over which interface and gateway a certain host or network can be reached. In this page you can configure your own custom routes.
=== Static IPv4 Routes ===---- Below is an example and information about Static IPv4 Routes.[[Image:Networking_RUTX_manual_static routes_ipv4_v1.png|border]]<table class="nd-mantable"><tr><th>Field</th><th>Value</th><th>Description</th></tr><tr><td>Interface</td><td>mobile | lan; default: <b>mobile</b></td><td>The zone where the target network resides</td></tr><tr><td>Target<span class="asterisk">*</span></td><td>ip4; default: <b>0.0.0.0</b></td><td>The address of the destination network</td></tr><tr><td>Netmask<span class="asterisk">*</span></td><td>netmask; default: <b>255.255.255.255</b></td><td>A Mask that is applied to the Target to determine to what actual IP addresses the routing rule applies</td></tr><tr><td>Gateway</td><td>ip; default: <b>none</b></td><td>Defines where the router should send all the traffic that applies to the rule</td></tr><tr><td>Metric</td><td>integer; default: <b>0</b></td><td>The <b>metric</b> value is used as a sorting measure. If a packet about to be routed fits two rules, the one with the lower metric is applied.</td></tr><tr><td>MTU</td><td>integer [64..9000]; default: <b>1500</b></td><td>Sets the maximum transmission unit (MTU) size. It is the largest size of a protocol data unit (PDU) that can be transmitted in a single network layer transaction.</td></tr><tr><td>Route Type</td><td>unicast | local | broadcast | multicast | unreachable | prohibit | backhole | anycast | -- custom -- ; default: <b>unicast</b></td><td>Selects route type. Each type specifies a different behavior for the route:<ul><li><b>unicast</b> -</li><li><b>local</b> - routes of this type are added to the 'local' routing table and used only for locally hosted IPs.</li><li><b>broadcast</b> - routes of this type are added to the 'local' routing table and used by link layer devices that support the broadcast address principle.</li><li><b>multicast</b> -</li><li><b>unreachable</b> -</li><li><b>prohibit</b> - used to prohibit traffic to specified host or network. When a destination is prohibited, the kernel sends a 'Network is unreachable' response the source address.</li><li><b>blackhole</b> - packets that match this type of route are discarded without any response.</li><li><b>anycast</b> -</li><li><b>-- custom --</b> -</li></ul></td></tr></table>
<span class="asterisk">*</span><b>Additional notes on Target & Netmask:</b>
You can define a rule that applies to a single IP like this:<ul><li><b>Target</b>: some IP</li><li><b>Netmask</b>: 255.255.255.255</li></ul>Furthermore, you can define a rules that apply to a range of IPs. Refer to the table below for examples.<table class="nd-mantable"><tr><th>Target</th><th>Netmask</th><th>Description</th></tr><tr><td>192.168.2.0</td><td>255.255.255.240</td><td>Applies to IPs in the 192.168.2.0 - 192.168.2.15 range.</td></tr><tr><td>192.168.2.240</td><td>255.255.255.240</td><td>Applies to IPs in the 192.168.2.240 - 192.168.2.255 range.</td></tr><tr><td>192.168.2.161</td><td>255.255.255.0</td><td>Applies to IPs in the 192.168.2.0 - 192.168.55.255 range.</td></tr><tr><td>192.168.0.0</td><td>255.255.0.0</td><td>Applies to IPs in the 192.168.0.0 - 192.168.255.255 range.</td></tr><tr><td>192.168.2.161</td><td>255.255.255.255</td><td>Only applies to 192.168.2.161.</td></tr></table><br />=== Static IPv6 routes Routes===
----
Settings for Static IPv6 routes are the same as for IPv4 only that the target IP and and gateway are different.
