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:
It does not help us, however. Any tips much appreciated.
