When an interface if0 is ifconfig'ed with network address A.B.C.D and a
netmask E.F.G.H does this mean that a route is added that basically says:
route -net add A.B.C.D netmask E.F.G.H if0
Now, reading /usr/src/linux/Documentation/networking/routing.txt it says:
- You more need not make "route add aaa.bbb.ccc... eth0",
it is made automatically.
but, does this happen for *any* interface that is ifconfig'ed, ie SCC cards,
If so, does anyone know when (in kernel versions) this occurred roughly?
Do these "interface routes" appear in the kernel routing table
(/proc/net/route), if not where can they be tracked?
The reason why I am asking this is that a program I wrote that manipulates
the routing table probably needs to be updated and I want to make sure I get
all the facts straight.
