INTERNET Preferences Editor
The Internet Preferences editor enables you to change the various characteristics relating to Internet access, comprising Interfaces, Routes, Hosts, Name Resolution, Services, and Servers, each one with its own editing window accessed from the left-hand menu bar.


If you simply want to specify a Default Gateway Address simply enter the IP address into the box provided, otherwise New, Copy, and Modify invoke the Routes Editing Window that follows, while Delete acts immediately (not an 'Are you sure?' in sight), however you can Cancel out if you make a mistake. Otherwise you must click on Save to save your changes.

Routes Editing Window

This window is invoked if you click on New, Copy, or Modify above.

Type is the gateway type and can be 'Auto', 'Host', or 'Network'.

Target Address is the IP Address of the targetted route.

If you select Use gateway so that a tick appears, you will then be able to enter a Gateway address, otherwise the field is non-keyable.

You must click on Use to retain the values entered, or Cancel to lose all changes, and return to the Routes window above.
