Trying to add a multicasting route to my OES2 server following Novell docs. However the command:

route add -net 224.0.0.0 netmask 240.0.0.0 dev eth0

is not being excepted with the compliant that the netmask does not make sense with the host route.

Here are my routes returned by route -n:

10.1.0.0 0.0.0.0 255.255.0.0 U 0 0 0 eth0
169.254.0.0 0.0.0.0 255.255.0.0 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 10.1.1.1 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 eth0

What I find odd with the routes is that my server is set with a default gateway of 10.1.1.1 so I am confused by the first route above.

Suggests please. Thanks, Chris.
