Subjectmy network problems with winXX (95,NT,memphis,...)
I had some network problems - winXX computers couldn't see my computer.
Happened somewhere after linux-2.1.24...

nonworking form:
route add -net 192.168.0.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 dev eth0 gw 192.168.0.46

working form:
route add -net 192.168.0.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 dev eth0

there's also:
route add default gw 192.168.0.46

Can you see the difference? :)

nonworking route
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface
192.168.0.0 mauve.computers 255.255.255.0 UG 0 0 0 eth0
192.168.0.0 * 255.255.255.0 U 32767 0 0 eth0
default mauve.computers 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 eth0

working route:
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface
192.168.0.0 * 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 eth0
default mauve.computers 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 eth0

This info is for those who were also stumped by the problem :)

Anyone know why the "metric 32767" showed up?
incidentally, multicasting ends up enabled on the device regardless of
kernel option.... I tried disabling it. [ifconfig eth0 -multicast] worked
though. (although it had no effect...)
TIA and G'day, eh? :)
