Thread: Question on "ip route"

    Question on "ip route"

    Here is some text extracted form Linux advance routing HOW-TO:

    Let's view the 'main' table:

    [ahu@home ahu]$ ip route list table main
    195.96.98.253 dev ppp2 proto kernel scope link src 212.64.78.148
    212.64.94.1 dev ppp0 proto kernel scope link src 212.64.94.251
    10.0.0.0/8 dev eth0 proto kernel scope link src 10.0.0.1
    127.0.0.0/8 dev lo scope link
    default via 212.64.94.1 dev ppp0
    I was confused by the key word "proto kernel" and "scope link". Would somebody kindly explain them to me??

    Re:Question on "ip route"

    IIRC 'proto' kernel means that its a kernel protocol. I am not a god at Linux routing, but that seems to state that a kernel driver is making a protcol (like TCP and UDP) and that is how the data your are referencing to is being routed.

    Any other ideas, net+ guys?
