Hello all, I am having some really annoying routing problems.

Here's my situation:

FreeBSD machine at ip xxx.yyy.18.61 connected to multi-homed 
gateway at xxx.yyy.18.1

The multi-homed machine is running RIP between installed 
adapters xxx.yyy.18.1 and xxx.yyy.180.54

Adapter xxx.yyy.180.54's default gateway is a router at 

My problem is this:  the FreeBSD machine can traceroute to 
everything that is in the routing table of the multi-homed 
gateway at xxx.yyy.18.1 (all entries beginning with 
the same xxx.yyy.0.0 -- essentially my campus-wide backbone), 
but when the destination is outside of the backbone and not in 
the routing table, such as :) , the packets are 
not being forwarded to the next-hop router at xxx.yyy.180.1.  

How do I get those packets on their way?  
Much obliged for any advice at all...
