/etc/rc.d/network has the following line in its start section:
route add -inet 127.0.0.0 -netmask 0xff000000 127.0.0.1 -reject
which, i would assume from reading it, sets up a blockhole route for
127.0.0.0/8 through lo0 (127.0.0.1 to be precise, since netbsd doesn't
do interface routing).
what confuses me is that it (a) doesn't seem to have any effect on the
routing table, and (b) always reports this:
writing to routing socket: File exists
add net 127.0.0.0: gateway 127.0.0.1: Bad file descriptor
which looks like an error. is this "right"?
