SIOCADDRT: Network is not reachable

SIOCADDRT: Network is not reachable

Post by Filip Hoste » Fri, 29 May 1998 04:00:00


While configuring my toshiba portable (ethernet via pcmcia, 3com
 i still get the error with the route commands :
SIOCADDRT: Network is not reachable
I have installed the ethernet card using the howto's.
Only control-panel from redhat can do the ethernet card work and then
everything is ok. (so nothing is wrong with the kernel and -modules)

Probably i'm not configuring it properly. I used the Net-2 howto to
update my /etc/rc.d directory.

Anybody knows why i get that message ? Please mail me.

1. SIOCADDRT Network not reachable

WHen my system boots, it states that it has found my ethernet card,
then I see a "SIOCADDRT" immediately after it says that it's found my
ethernet card at 0x300.
Afterwards, when I manually run the following three commands, it fails
on the third command with a "SIOCADDRT Network not reachable" error
message.  The first 2 commands run fine.

        root# ifconfig eth0 netmask up
        root# route add -net netmask eth0
        root# route add default gw eth0

If anyone can shed some light on this, I would appreciate it.  It's
keeping me up at night!
