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 dev ppp2 proto kernel scope link src dev ppp0 proto kernel scope link src dev eth0 proto kernel scope link src dev lo scope link
    default via 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?
