Hi all. I am interested in running a local httpd server here on my small
ethernet network. One of the PC's is also connected via ppp to the net.
When I type the IP address of my local web server, it hunts for it out on
the internet.. How can I get it to look locally first? This is my
current route -n config:

route -n
Kernel routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags MSS Window Use Iface * UH 1500 0 0 ppp0 * UH 1500 0 0 eth0 * U 1500 0 9 eth0 * U 3584 0 3 lo
default * UG 1500 0 6 ppp0

As you can see, my default route is on the net, but my IP address is, and the local httpd server is I tried to
add a route to it, but I think I'm still missing something (ip aliasing?)

Thanks much,
Dave Wreski
