A strange one this. I was trying to change the default route of a machine for testing a different gateway.

I ran:

route del default gw <gateway1>

route add default gw <gateway2>

However the second command did not add the route and I could not add the old default route back. There were no errors on stdout or in /var/log/messages.

Now I found that if there is already a default route you can add another one, so could do a:

route add default gw <gateway2>

route del default gw <gateway2>

And these worked fine. It seems you cannot set a default route if there isn't one set.

Any ideas ?
