Then you need a default route for each line, and I would add the preferred
interface on the second one.

No the two lines are completely separate networks.
Client had a virus and they have set up a completely new network on a
different subnet and have deployed new equipment to the new network and
want to isolate the IBMi
So they have two internet connections
I have looked at schowler routes - may have to look more closely.
For now as long as the PC's are on the same subnet it will work and any
outside traffic from server will go out the default route.

Subject: Re: Multinpe interfaces - how can I have a default route
for different interfaces
Are ETHLINE and ETHLINE1 on the same network, IE: both 192.168.10.x and
the the same subnet? Or are they different networks?
Is this new interface going to a specific host?
Look up schowler routes. It might require a host route. What are you
trying to do?
Load balancing, fail over, or directing a specific address to a specific

I am sure I have done this before but ...
The IBMi has a 4 port network card with resources CMN03, CMN04, CMN05,
System is V7R3
CMN03 is for the console connection (No HMC)
CMN04 is the current lan conection (ETHLINE)
CMN06 I have created a new Ethernet line using this (ETHLIN01)
I have configured an IP address and varied the line on and started the
There is a default route using the gateway that is for CMN04 ETHLINE but
this does not have a preferred interface set and I can't take it down at
the moment to test changing that.
I want a default route for this new interface subnet I have created but
from my reading the IBMi has routes at a system level not an interface
I thought I could have multiple *DFTROUTE for different interfaces but
is not allowing that or I am doing something else wrong.
Has anyone set up a similar requirement where two different networks are
accessing the IBMi on tow different interfaces and a default route is
required for each interface ?
Thank you for any suggestions
