SubjectRouting table problems
Hi All,

I am facing a problem ( ???, maybe it works that way, but i really dont
know ) with regards to routing table behavior when using ifconfig on a
network interface.

1) netstat -nr Shows my default gateway for network

2) ifconfig eth0 down

3) netstat -nr No entry for the default gateway is shown (
understandable )

4) ifconfig eth0 up

After the the 4'th command, my interface is up and has it's IP address set
correctly. But .....

netstat -nr does not show my default gateway for network !!.
Pinging any IP outside of my subnet, results in "Network is unreachable"

Is is meant to be that way ? or is there a problem here ?

I've tried it on kernel versions, 2.4.0, 2.4.5 & 2.4.15

FYI : This has been tried using both DHCP and Static IP.

Thanks in advance !
