I tried 'route add default gw 192.168.2.102' and got an new line in the
response to route reading '0.0.0.0 192.168.2.102 etc' Next I tried
'route add -host 192.168.2.104 gw 192.168.2.102' and the the response to
route was 'debian Cerberus.Zoo 255.255.255.255 UGH 0 0 0 eth0'
where debian is the hostname assigned when the Debian Live CD was built
and I had edited /etc/hosts to associate the names with the IP addresses.
I also edited /etc/resolv.conf to enter the IP address of a Verizion
The network is still unreachable although all the machines
on the lan respond to pings.
Could the problem be the IP address 169.254.122.180 is still assigned to
eth0? I have been unable to remove this and it is always the first item
in the output of ifconfig. It is now followed by an entry for eth0:0
which contains the 192.168.2.102 address. If the firewall sees
169.254.122.180 it will drop the message on the floor.
