NAME

       routes - Shorewall file

SYNOPSIS

       /etc/shorewall[6]/routes

DESCRIPTION

       This file was added in Shorewall 4.4.15 and is used to define routes to be added to
       provider routing tables.

       The columns in the file are as follows.

       PROVIDER
           The name or number of a provider defined in shorewall-providers[1] (5). Beginning with
           Shorewall 4.5.14, you may also enter main in this column to add routes to the main
           routing table.

       DEST
           Destination host address or network address.

       GATEWAY (Optional)
           If specified, gives the IP address of the gateway to the DEST.

           Beginning with Shorewall 4.5.14, you may specify blackhole in this column to create a
           blackhole route.

           Beginning with Shorewall 4.5.15, you may specify prohibit or unreachable in this
           column to create a prohibit or unreachable route respectively.

       DEVICE (Optional)
           Specifies the device route. If neither DEVICE nor GATEWAY is given, then the INTERFACE
           specified for the PROVIDER in shorewall-providers[1] (5). This column must be omitted
           if blackhole, prohibit or unreachable is specified in the GATEWAY column.

       OPTIONS (Optional)
           Added in Shorewall 5.0.2.

           Allowed options are:

           persistent
               If specified, the route remains in the provider's routing table even when the
               provider is disabled.
