Hello all, We have a somewhat unique setup whereby our default router is outside of the local network. Let us say our network is 192.168.10.0/255.255.255.0 So we have a route-eth0 file that looks something like this: 10.1.1.1 via 192.168.10.1 dev eth0 default 10.1.1.1 dev eth0 The last definition would simply not take - but it has to for the setup to work. And no, 192.168.10.1 does not operate as a full-fledge router due to our setup. When we attempt to add it manually we get the following error: RTNETLINK answers: No such process When we use ifup we get the following: Error: either "to" is a duplicate, or "10.1.1.1" is a garbage. A little discussion of this can be found here: http://www.centos.org/docs/5/html/5.1/Deployment_Guide/s1-networkscripts-static-routes.html and here: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-networking-3/etc-init-d-networking-restart-errors-637610/ It does not help us, however. Any tips much appreciated. Cheers, Boris.
