How to add a multicast static route in centOS4.4


I would like to know how to add a static route to

I know how to do it manually via the route command.

route add -net netmask dev eth0
which give you the following route.

Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface * 0 0 0 eth 0

But i would like to add the route to route-eth0 so i don't need to apply it manually everytime the server reboots.

I've seen an example format for the file as via

But i don't know what the equivalent is for the following route
route add -net netmask dev eth0

What do i put after 'via' for the above multicast route.

eg. via ???

I think you want to use /etc/sysconfig/static-routes instead. You would use syntax like this (I think):
eth0 net netmask
You also might want to consider using /etc/net.
