SIOCADDRT: Invalid argument

SIOCADDRT: Invalid argument

Post by C. M. Rahman » Fri, 17 Feb 1995 19:53:39



My linux recognized etherexpress ether card. But it seems to fail
pinging it own self. if I do ifconfig eth0, i get all the
information about ethercard and the IP addresses. But I don't see
any of those IP added in routing table. If I ping its own ip, it
says network unreachable. How do I fix this? I am using plug & play
linux. Anybody has any idea?

1. route add ==> SIOCADDRT: Invalid argument

Hi all,

I tried using some lines from the NET-3-HOWTO to configure
a test ethernet between a solaris 2.5.1 machine and a
Linux-2.0.29 box and got the following error message:

    # ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.10 netmask 255.255.255.0 up
    # route add -net 192.168.0.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 eth0
    # route add default gw 192.168.1.1 eth0

    SIOCADDRT: Invalid argument

Can anybody tell me what that should mean ?

Thanks,
