Gateway setting defaults to wrong ip
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:40:59 EDT
When I enter network information in anaconda, the "Gateway:" field will always
default to xxx.yyy.zzz.254 in the given network.
Isn't this wrong? All networks I have ever encountered use the first ip address
in the ip range for the gateway, so I think using xxx.yyy.zzz.1 for the gateway
would be a better default in anaconda.
Not wrong... there is no standard at all, unfortunately :(
On the other hand, most other software installers default to xxx.yyy.zzz.1 for
the gateway as far as I know, so there might be a reason to change the default
in Anaconda so as to not be different on purpose when there's no real standard.
