maybe i'm just dense but it seems that change ip and striker's posts are contradicting themselves.
like stryker777 said - route marking/policy routing does not seem to work when the router is the one generating the icmp traffic.
I thought Stryker was saying TO use route marking. changeip is saying no?
let me lay it out like this:
eth1 : PPPoE, DSL GW 22.214.171.124
eth2 : DHCP Cable GW 126.96.36.199
so do i need to route all traffic to A "stable IP" via eth1? then netwatch the "stable IP". the down script turns 0.0.0.0/0 over to cable as the netwatch will keep trying the route and not getting through....once the modem is up the ping will go through
am i missing something?
thanks for all the quick help
