Description Larry Adams 2000-08-22 14:58:31 UTC
Using the NETCONF utility with the following information:

IP Address: 148.98.150.138
Netmask:    255.255.255.192
Gateway:    148.98.150.1

The network did not initialize correctly.  Reported in "netstat -nr" was 
the following:

IP Address: 148.98.150.138
Genmask:    255.255.255.255
IP Address: 148.98.150.128 (Does not exist on Network)
Genmask:    255.255.255.192

The Gateway did not show up in the Netstat listing.  I have changed to a 
different siderblock Class C network and have not had the same problem.  
However, to make the server production, I must move it into the network 
that currently has the problem.  Please help.

This is normal.   The network address is correctly calculated using your own IP
address and netmask.  If you bring your interface up again, the default route
should be set.
