i've seen this twice, now, over the past few months, on either end
of the same ppp connection:
when i try to add routes on a machine that has a route to a ppp
interface, (default or otherwise, it seems), with a gateway of a
machine that a route entry already exists for (a machine also on
local ethernet in both cases), the new routes "interface" is the
ppp interface, not the ethernet interface. this of course totally
loses. i tried using the "-iface" option to route, but it did not
another data point here is that both local ethernets are C class
networks, that have been subnetted, and that the destination of the
route was a separate subnet of the class C address.
i also tried running routed with a /etc/gateways but it didn't seem
to work either (it didn't seem to like specifying any sort of network
set up netbsd box with local class C network, subnetted, with a
router between the two networks. attach a ppp interface and make
this he default route. then try to add a route to the router to
access the other local subnet.
