i was just reading over this again, and I am confused on one point. YOu
are correct in that if my gateway is 194.200.10.xxx , then my eth0
interface should be 194.200.10.yyy, and it IS currently that way...well,
that's the intention, but it won't let me add the route for the
I am thinking that perhaps you think I've got something like gateway of
194.200.15.xxx and eth0 set at 194.200.10.yyy, which is not the case.
I'm working with the same subnet, and my IPs are one address apart.
Something like 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206
I may have misunderstood your message, if I am not clear on this, please
let me know :)
