IP routing tables version 4.x versus 5.x

Didn't search for it yet but I noticed that on my TCP 5.x systems I have a route with gateway and destination pointing to the local node.
This route is not present on my 4.x systems.

I removed the route and found everything still working as before.

Anyone an idea why this route exists ?

I guess is a feature of the software ported from unix. I cant find a reference in the documentation.

Re: IP routing tables version 4.x versus 5.x

We had something similar on our new 7.3-2 system back in 2004, which did cause trouble. We deleted it, but it returned after reboot, until we deleberately deleted all permanent routes and created the (correct) default one.
I still don't know where it came from...A remainder on installation, perhaps?

(This may have been put into this forum - but I'm not sure)
