I am working on this as part of ticket #405. The inetcfg utility is used to configure address objects (an address object is a network address associated with an IP link). Soon it will also allow configuring gateways. The internet service (inet) routes based on this configuration. There is no special interface for administering a routing table since no such special table exists.

Fixed as part of work on #405. The inetcfg utility allows you to configure IP addresses on IP datalinks, configure simple static routes (which includes the case of default router).
