The IBM Advanced Interactive executive (AIX) machine is a line of proprietary Unix operating systems designed to work on IBM platforms and the Apple Network Server. It has supported IBM Power systems, IBM System I servers and PS/2 personal computers. Static routing refers to a method of configuring the path of routers in a set of computer networks for data communication. Modifying the static route on AIX machines when there are changes in the network or new paths to add requires a few steps to set up.
