Hi, I'm trying to migrate my router from RedHat 7.2 to FreeBSD. Please see the following scrit - it works fine under linux: =========== touch /var/lock/subsys/local sleep 5 /sbin/ifconfig eth0 down sleep 1 /sbin/ifconfig eth0 126.96.36.199 netmask 255.255.255.255 up sleep 2 /sbin/route add -host 188.8.131.52 eth0 /sbin/route add default gw 184.108.40.206 /sbin/route add -net 192.168.17.0/24 eth0
============ I could never make that work for FREEBSD. ifconfig fxp0 down ifconfig fxp0 220.127.116.11 netmask 255.255.255.255 up route add -host 18.104.22.168 22.214.171.124 255.255.255.255 or route add -host 126.96.36.199 188.8.131.52 Looks impossible at freebsd...It says Network Unreachable. I read the man page of route; It says this happens when the host is more than one hop away. But it is working with my old RedHat. Typing just: route add -host 184.108.40.206 220.127.116.11 works, but I need 255.255.255.255 mask to have inet access I posted to the local group but the only guy that anaswered me says that it is not possible. Please help, I just can't believe that freebsd can not do it.
