I did not tell you in my first mail, that some times different hosts are
reachable and unreachable. I will try to not confuse you :)
As of now, 172.16.0.59 is OK, and 172.16.0.37 is NOT OK.
Also, 172.16.0.64 is OK now, and 172.16.0.42 is NOT OK now.

The two commands you have requested give the following output for these
IP addresses:

These are OK:

# ip route get 172.16.0.64
172.16.0.64 via 172.16.1.254 dev eth0 src 172.16.1.22
cache
# ip route get 172.16.0.59
172.16.0.59 via 172.16.1.254 dev eth0 src 172.16.1.22
cache

These are NOT OK:

# ip route get 172.16.0.37
172.16.0.37 dev eth0 src 172.16.1.22
cache <redirected> ipid 0x97a4
# ip route get 172.16.0.42
172.16.0.42 dev eth0 src 172.16.1.22
cache <redirected> ipid 0x0d21

These are OK:

# ip route list cache match 172.16.0.59
172.16.0.59 via 172.16.1.254 dev eth0 src 172.16.1.22
cache
# ip route list cache match 172.16.0.64
172.16.0.64 via 172.16.1.254 dev eth0 src 172.16.1.22
cache

These are NOT OK:

# ip route list cache match 172.16.0.37
172.16.0.37 dev eth0 src 172.16.1.22
cache <redirected> ipid 0x97a4
172.16.0.37 from 172.16.1.22 dev eth0
cache <redirected> ipid 0x97a4
172.16.0.37 from 172.16.1.22 dev eth0
cache <redirected> ipid 0x97a4
# ip route list cache match 172.16.0.42
172.16.0.42 dev eth0 src 172.16.1.22
cache <redirected> ipid 0x0d21
172.16.0.42 from 172.16.1.22 dev eth0
cache <redirected> ipid 0x0d21


How can I fix this?

Thanks!
