SLIP/route problem: "network unreachable"

SLIP/route problem: "network unreachable"

Post by Jon Anhold N8U » Thu, 02 Dec 1993 03:29:11



Well, I have just gotten net-2 to work, almost. I've traced the problem to
the routing.. when I use DIP to dial in, it sets the routing for the SLIP
server as a normal route, and not as the default.. when i try to correct
this, with 'route add default sl0 gw <slip server>' it says 'network
unreachable'.. well, of course it is! the routing is wrong! But if I can't
correct the routing, I can make the network 'reachable'. Is there a version
of DIP which will set the default instead?

Thanks..

: this, with 'route add default sl0 gw <slip server>' it says 'network

isn't it 'route add sl0 default gw <slip server>'?

Try: 'route del <slip-server>'
'route add default gw <slip-server>'

1. SMAIL problems: "lock failed", and "network is unreachable."

        Well, I got smail working so that it went through and delivered
all of the mail that wasn't delivered the last two months. Now I can't
send new mail to anyone. Here's a brief segment of what was in
/usr/spool/smail/logfile:



10/12/94 12:42:04: [m0qv6ke-0004mgC] received
|            from: mark
|         program: sendmail

|            size: 631 bytes

10/12/94 12:45:56: pid 253: new config files, exec(/usr/lib/sendmail)
10/12/94 12:45:56: pid 6860: smail daemon started

10/12/94 13:30:58: open_spool: /var/spool/smail/input/0qv6ke-0004mgC: lock failed: File exists

        I don't know if that help anyone or not. I'm running linux
1.1.45, and smail 3.1.28. My system is currently not connected to the
internet, though that shouldn't matter because I'm just trying to send
mail to myself.

        Anyone have any clues, or can point me into a direction to look?
If you need more information, email me.

        Much thanks.
