ifconfig expert question


If i let ifconfig set up a new interface, it automatically creates a new route especially for that interface.
How can i prevent ifconfig adding this route into the routing table?? (Because i don't want this route).

if you don't want a route use a 32bit netmask ( that's the only known way to tell ifconfig to not setup a route to the specific device ...

other way is to remove the route by hand with the route command (f.e. if you're using an other subnet)
