 Subject:  Static routes not working in 24!
 Date:  Wed, 21 Jan 2004 08:30:08 -0600
I've got a subnetted lan with two subnets: and,
they are routed NOT via m0n0, but via a multihomed win2k server (one
segment is copper other is fiber)
** I'm actually not using those addresses above, but the concept
What I *thought* I could do was put m0n0 on one of the subnets, and tell
it how to get to the other via a static route.
It's on the .22 subnet, with a static route that uses the multihomed
win2k machine as gateway for the .23 network.
It isn't doing that however.  (All my other machines can talk between
subnets)  I can't "ping" any machine on the .23 subnet from m0n0.  I
receive the error "no route to host"
Are these static routes not applying to m0n0 itself, maybe just to
clients or something?  If so, WHY? :-)  My only other alternative is to
directly connect m0n0 to the multihomed machine using another NIC, and I
don't like that idea.
I tried to "display" the routes using exec.php, but I don't know how to
do it.  Route by itself gives me some command line syntax, without the
purpose of the switches, and I tried route print too :-)
Thanks for your help,
