I hope one of the resident gurus can explain an anomaly I came across recently.
I had to set up a machine on a network which had to connect to a machine on another network ( both connected somehow, I don't know details). The info I was give was as follows:
However, when I try to bring up the interface, I get
SIOCADDRT: No such process
presumably because the address is not on the same subnet as the gateway. If I change the address to192.168.89.65 ( on the same subnet) it works fine.
Now, the network in question works. It's used for many applications on the site. So how do they do it? How is routing set up with no default gateway on the same subnet?
