 Subject:  wierd static route problem
 Date:  Sun, 03 Apr 2005 17:25:50 +0000
Hello,

I'm not much of a routing expert, so this could be
just a misconfiguration, but I can't figure it out,
so I hope someone can help.

I've got a OPT1 interface called WLAN. The subnet is
192.168.89.0/24. On that subnet, I have a machine
(192.168.89.52) that needs an IP on a different
subnet (192.168.90.3/32) so I can perform a unique
outbound NAT mapping on daemons bound to that IP.

So I set up the following static route:

		<route>
			<interface>opt1</interface>
			<network>192.168.90.3/32</network>
			<gateway>192.168.89.52</gateway>
			<descr>matrixica.guardiani.us static route</descr>
		</route>


But I can't ping 192.168.90.3 from another machine
on the 192.168.89.0/24 network. If I add a static
route to the machine I'm pinging from, then it works!
But it doesn't work if I rely on the m0n0wall for
static routing.

This is with 1.2b7 on a generic PC.

Am I doing something wrong?
