FreeBSD - Add default route
FreeBSD add default route, add default route on a FreeBSD machine


FreeBSD - Add default route

$ route add default

Routing tables

Destination        Gateway            Flags    Refs      Use  Netif Expire
default         UGS         0       34    rl0

Delete default route

$ route delete default
