Specifically, does it have a route for that specific host. Look at the output of /sbin/route -n or /sbin/ip route show. It won't sent redirects for routes it doesn't know. It only knows the routes it's been told or discovers. (I'm not exactly sure how it would discover this route.) -- Boyd Stephen Smith Jr. ,= ,-_-. =. firstname.lastname@example.org ((_/)o o(\_)) ICQ: 514984 YM/AIM: DaTwinkDaddy `-'(. .)`-' http://iguanasuicide.org/ \_/
