The documentation on FIBs is pretty slim unless I've been looking in the

curious if there's a command to specifically modify a FIB beyond 0,
besides something like

setfib 1 route add ...

setfib selects the routing table for locally originated
outgoing packets. Besides locally originated packets, there
are packets arriving from the network and need to be forwarded.
These packets can be classified in a specific routing table
with the aid of ipfw. That's all there is. I can't think
of something else that needs to be thought with regard to
multiple routing tables.

HTH, Nikos

Sorry, perhaps I wasn't clear. What I'm interested in is if there's a way to deal with *modifying* those other routing tables, besides using setfib as I described (e.g., you want to have a different default gateway). There would be no reason to have multiple routing tables if they're carbon copies of one another.
