Default gateway

Quick question.

If I want to remove routing entry " UG 0 0 0 eth0", I know that entering command "route del default gw" works. However, when I reboot the linux box, that same entry comes back to haunt me. So, which file should I edit in order to avoid having that routing entry add by itself on bootup? I'm quite sure it's one of the files in my /etc/init.d directory, but not sure which one.

root@ubuntu:~ # route -n
Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface U 0 0 0 eth0 U 0 0 0 eth1 UG 0 0 0 eth0 -----> remove UG 0 0 0 eth1

Oh well, figured it out myself. Went to :


Commented out :

root@ubuntu:/etc/bind # more /etc/network/interfaces
# This file describes the network interfaces available on your s
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces

# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# This is a list of hotpluggable network interfaces.
# They will be activated automatically by the hotplug subsystem.
mapping hotplug
script grep
map eth1

# The primary network interface

iface eth0 inet static
;gateway -----------------> this

auto eth0

iface eth1 inet static

auto eth1
