       defaultrouter - configuration file for default router(s)


       The /etc/defaultrouter file specifies a IPv4 host's default router(s).

       The format of the file is as follows:


       The  /etc/defaultrouter	file can contain the IP addresses or hostnames
       of one or more default routers, with each entry on its own line. If you
       use  hostnames,	each  hostname	must  also  be	listed	in  the	 local
       /etc/hosts file, because no name services are running at the time  that
       defaultrouter is read.

       Lines beginning with the ``#'' character are treated as comments.

       The  default routes listed in this file replace those added by the ker‐
       nel during diskless booting.  An	 empty	/etc/defaultrouter  file  will
       cause the default route added by the kernel to be deleted.

       Use  of	a  default  route, whether received from a DHCP server or from
       /etc/defaultrouter, prevents a machine from acting as an	 IPv4  router.
       You can use routeadm(1M) to override this behavior.

			     Configuration file containing the hostnames or IP
			     addresses of one or more default routers.
