Re: Pb with routing

Thanks for your answer, it's more clear to me now.

Well, I want to keep the 10.0.0.0 subnet (If I can!).
If I modify my routing table as follow :

> routing table:
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface
10.1.0.0 * 255.255.0.0 U 0 0 0 eth1
10.0.0.0 * 255.0.0.0 U 0 0 0 eth0
127.0.0.0 * 255.0.0.0 U 0 0 0 lo
0.0.0.0 10.0.0.1 0.0.0.0 UG 1 0 0 eth0

The subnet portion of the address has not all bits set to zeroes, so it should
work, isn't it?

Now the stations on 10.0.0.0 has the routing table:
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface
10.1.0.0 10.0.0.2 255.255.0.0 U 0 0 0
eth0
10.0.0.0 * 255.0.0.0 U 0 0 0 eth0
127.0.0.0 * 255.0.0.0 U 0 0 0 lo
0.0.0.0 10.0.0.1 0.0.0.0 UG 1 0 0 eth0

And on the subnet 10.1.0.0, we have :
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface
10.1.0.0 * 255.255.0.0 U 0 0 0 eth0
127.0.0.0 * 255.0.0.0 U 0 0 0 lo
0.0.0.0 10.1.0.1 0.0.0.0 UG 1 0 0 eth0

So normally, the subnet are Ok, but I can't ping across the gateway...
Moreover, when I do a traceroute from a station in 10.0.0.0 to one in
10.1.0.0 and vice -versa, it doesn't reach the gateway... Is it normal??

Any idea? Excuse me if the questions are naive, but I'm a newbie in
routing... ;-)

Thx again

Seb.
