Hi guys and gals,
A wet and windy Sunday afternoon here so I'm playing about on my linux box wondering about which silly questions I need answering.
I've always been a bit puzzled about the output of the route command.
My linux machine ( from which I issue the route command) has IP of 192.168.0.11
and is connected to a gateway machine ( from which I share a net connection) with IP 192.168.0.1
. Here is the output of route -n
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface
192.168.0.0 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.0 U 10 0 0 eth0
169.254.0.0 0.0.0.0 255.255.0.0 U 10 0 0 eth0
127.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 255.0.0.0 U 0 0 0 lo
0.0.0.0 192.168.0.1 0.0.0.0 UG 10 0 0 eth0
Could someone kindly aid in interpreting the above ? Basically I would like enlightening on what it all means. Why is my Linux box not represented here ?
Thanks again !
ps: Gateway Machine has two NICs installed.
