    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? :)
