You should let one interface configured normally, with 24 bits netmask (255.255.255.0), but for the others(one or more) you must use 32 bits netmask (255.255.255.255). If you use use 32 bits netmask for all interfaces, outgoing IP packets will reach the router even the destination is on 192.168.102.0/24 network and could be reached directly. ----------- Ciprian > > defaultrouter="192.168.102.1" > > > > IS there thing else that I need to do to > configure fxp1 to survive a > > reboot?
