Need to direct printing to eth0


I'm running RH9 with 2 NIC's on the same network. eth0 is for LAN/Internet. eth1 is for a sniffer (receive only, Hardware Mod). Everything works fine (Internet and sniffer) with the exception of printing. I have added gatewaydev=eth0 to the network file. And that allowed me to get to the Internet. But when I try to print, the system trys to use eth1. Is there a way to direct/force all printing to use eth0? I have tried to do a search, but being somewhat new. Most of the finds did not seem to have the answer I needed. eth0 is set up DHCP and eth1 is Dynamic (because of the hardware mod).

Try adding a static route:
route add 192.168.1.1 dev eth0

Obviously change 192.168.1.1 to the ip of whatever you are printing to.

Please just reply to threads most people get automatic notifications to messages that also include links to threads. This makes it much easier for me to find them again and also lets people with similar questions in the future see how it is done. E-mailing me won;t make me respond any quicker:

Try adding a static route:
route add 192.168.1.1 dev eth0

192.168.0.1

Please can you tell what file (ect. network) that I can modify so this route would be there on start up.

Thank you for your help.
You can use:
/etc/sysconfig/static-routes

Thank you for your information and support. I just have one more little problem. I did not find the file static-route. I did a search on the drive and it came up with nothing.

If the file doesn't already exist then just create it:
/etc/sysconfig/static-routes

Thank You.

But after trying and checking. I found out that RH9 and maybe RH8 no longer uses static-routes.

I add the line
" route add 192.168.0.1 dev eth0"

to /ect/rc.local

Works fine and thank you for steering me in the right direction

Thanks for pointing that out - I've only ever need to use "static-routes" on a 7.2 server. I couldn't find any official docs on the subject but future readers may be interested in:
