Routing issue?

What exactly isn't working? You don't have two L3 nets, but two ips on the same net - nothing to route, except the default.

Subject: Routing issue?

I'm trying to get the other half of my business up on my second IP.

It's not routing. This is not a multi-homed system, but two IPs in the same subnet.

[root at server /usr/home/ryan]# netstat -nr 
Routing tables

ifconfig_em0="inet  netmask"
ifconfig_em1="inet netmask"

I tried to add the gateway for link2 but it's not taking since it already exists, and I've run multiple IP'd servers before without issue.

I'm really lost._______________________________________________
