Re: routed(8) & arplookup brain-death on i386-current?

this happened to me, but i got all internal addresses as "unable to enter
address blah blah blah".  The problem was that a solaris box was
broadcasting a route and openbsd was picking it up.  The route is was
broadcasting (this was a while ago, so the details are fuzzy) didn't really
affect the internal ip's so it was strange.  Anyway, as soon as i started
routed on the Solaris box with the "don't send out routes" flag, it all
stopped.  Take a close look at your netstat -rn output.  i mean close, i
missed the damn route after looking at it at least 3 times.  Hope that
