This leaves me with
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface
188.8.131.52 * 255.255.252.0 U 32767 0 0 eth0
default 184.108.40.206 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 eth0
(Excuse the formatting, pine's internal editor isn't always
nice, and I haven't had time reconfiguring.)
I can't access the outside world with this. (BTW, the mask
really does need to be 255.255.252.0.) Shouldn't the Metric
field for the second line be 1 or something? Now all my
traceroutes to external addresses give me just one line (the
system itself). If I try to set the metric with route, I get
an exception and the command fails.
