Default Gateway/Route

In the past (VyOS 1.1) used a gateway-address configured under the system tree (set system gateway-address <address>), this is no longer supported and existing configurations are migrated to the new CLI command.

Configuration

set protocols static route 0.0.0.0/0 next-hop <address>
Specify static route into the routing table sending all non local traffic to the nexthop address <address>.
delete protocols static route 0.0.0.0/0
Delete default route from the system.

Operation

show ip route 0.0.0.0

Show routing table entry for the default route.

vyos@vyos:~$ show ip route 0.0.0.0
Routing entry for 0.0.0.0/0
  Known via "static", distance 10, metric 0, best
