I am wondering whether I stumbled across a bug in 1.5.2 or that I am
missing something obvious. On a machine running 1.5.1_ALPHA and a more
or less -current machine, I can do the following:
(or ping -I 10.0.0.1 126.96.36.199 or something like that)
and get a response from RIP routers. On these machines I also run a
RIP routing daemon successfully.
Now, I have installed NetBSD-1.5.2 on some machines, and on these
a ping 188.8.131.52 (with or without -I specified) fail with a `No route
to host' message. Also the rip daemon gives such warnings/errors when
started and fails to send routing updates (it does receive them from
Some fiddling learned me that adding a default route (to localhost
for example) `fixes' the problem and causes rip to run fine and the
pings too. This certainly doesn't look like a proper solution to me.
Basically, I'm clueless as to what could cause this or to what the
proper solution is. Any pointers, ideas? Is this a 1.5.2 bug, some
misconfiguration by me??? Couldn't find any open bugs on multicast for
1.5.2, so I assume I'm doing something silly.
