Procedure documentationCreating a Route Permission Table Locate this document in the navigation structure


You can create a route permission table with a standard text editor.

You must create a separate route permission table for each SAProuter in your network.

If no specific route permission table has been assigned to the SAProuter, ./saprouttab is used on UNIX and IBM i. File saprouttab is searched for in the working directory of SAProuter <lwk>:\usr\sap\saprouter. If this file is not available, SAProuter terminates with an appropriate message.


Create the file in the relevant directory. You can find a description of the syntax under Route Permission Table.

You can use generic entries ( *) in hosts, ports, and passwords.

You can use subnetworks in host routes as described in the following table:

Entry in the Route Permission Table



All host addresses beginning with 156.56.


All host addresses beginning with 133.27.17

All host addresses beginning with 133.27.16 (0/24 at the end means that the first 24 bits are relevant, that is, the first three blocks)


All host addresses from 156.56.176.* bis 156.56.191.*.

(Binary interpretation of the third byte of the address. 'x' is a freely selectable binary value (1 or 0).)
