When I list the routing rules in my Linux desktop, this is what comes up:

$ ip rule
0:  from all lookup local 
32766:  from all lookup main 
32767:  from all lookup default

I've used routing rules before to redirect traffic to additional tables, but I've always seen the "default" table there without really knowing what's for. Is it special? Could I add routes (and point routing rules) to it as any other table?

Thanks in advance!
