 Subject:  static route problem??
 Date:  Mon, 12 Jan 2004 23:34:53 -0500
I'm not sure, but I think I've come across a static route configuration 
problem.  I am trying to point a static route that goes from my Opt1 
interface, to my LAN interface.  My Opt1 interface is on a seperate 
subnet than my LAN.  So, I set up a route that pertains to Opt1 
interface, along with the destination network, and the IP of my LAN 
interface as the gateway.  Now, I realize that this is not an entirely 
correct way to make a static route (the gateway should be another router 
connected to the m0n0wall), however, when I do a tracert  to the 
destination, my LAN IP never comes up.  It times out right after the 
Opt1 interface.  Also, if I do a tracert to the network from a machine 
hooked to the LAN subnet, I get a double hop at the LAN interface.  I 
wouldn't expect that since the rule was entered to pertain to the Opt1 
interface, so I assumed it wouldn't affect the LAN interface at all.  
Also, when looking at the status.php page,  the routing table shows xl0 
under the netif column.  xl0 is my LAN interface, while an0 is my Opt1 
interface.  Shouldn't it show an0 under netif?  Have I found a bug?  
BTW, I am running version pb23r570.
