Subject:   strange broadcast gateway on netstat
Message-ID:  <>

Next in thread | Raw E-Mail | Index | Archive | Help
This is on 2.2-961014-SNAP.

Doing a "netstat -rn" produces the following for the broadcast address:     ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff  UHLWb       1       41       ep0

"arp broadcast" produces:

broadcast ( at ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff permanent

Why would I be getting "ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff" instead of the proper ethernet address or a link #? 

This behaviour was not apparent when I had 2.1.5.R; I have kept all system configurations the same while upgrading.

Any pointers?
