They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface
10.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 eth0
127.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 255.0.0.0 U 0 0 0 lo
0.0.0.0 10.0.0.1 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 eth0
As you might guess, 10.0.0.1 is the address of my gateway, hence the default route of 0.0.0.0.
With this configuration, why am I not able to hit other hosts? There is no firewall rules set on any of my boxes; I have checked physical connectivity (link light on the nic and the switch on all ports) and don't know what it could be. I even deleted and recreated the route entry for the 10.0.0.0 subnet and recreated it. Any ideas?
i've tried a couple of cables; i am pretty sure the error message isn't referring to physical media, or it wouldn't be complaining about the lack of a route to host.
i've tried pinging 10.0.0.1, 10.0.0.3, and 10.0.0.251, 3 hosts on my local subnet that are live. same error.
