Description abgrubbs 2002-01-11 00:12:32 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.06 [en] (WinNT; U ;Nav)

Description of problem:
I'm using a RH 7.0 system that has been updated to 2.2.19-7.0.12 kernel.

I have installed the gated-3.6-12.i386.rpm package. 

I have a /etc/gated.conf that has a static section that includes a default route.  I have not created a static default route in the routing tables outside of 
gated.  

When I start gated and look at the log file I see that it is doing an ADD on the default route, and it
is also listed in the gated dump (logs and dumps can be provided if needed).  The problem is
that netstat -rn does not show a default route in the routing table.

I can verify it's working because of the logs and by testing connectivity.
With gated on, I can reach the internet through my default route. With
gated off, I get network unreachable.



Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.install gated-3.6-12
2.create /etc/gated.conf with a static section that includes a default route
3.start gated
4. look for default route with netstat -rn

Comment 3 abgrubbs 2002-01-11 01:37:33 UTC
I have also tested gated 3.6-12 as simply a listener to rip updates and 
it receives the default route via rip, the log shows it's updating the kernel, 
but the default route is never displayed with netstat -rn.

As before I can verify the operational default route because the internet
is reachable as long as gated is running, and goes unreachable
as soon as I kill gated (and the log shows that default route is removed)
