I have following list of route addresses which I need to add in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/route-eth0 file in order to make it permanent add.

route add -net netmask gw
route add -net netmask gw
route add -net netmask gw
route add -net netmask gw
route add -net netmask gw

In Windows it is simple to add. It can be achieved by adding just -p command and it makes it permanent. What will be the file format for Linux. Any help appreciated.

You can use this syntax command:

route add default

taken from

man route

Or from the newer

ip route add default

taken from

man ip route

which seems to have more options than the old one.
