Hello,

I have a NAS drive attached to AIX system1 with crosover cable (point to point) with some private IP assigned for NAS and the AIX interface.
Alas I can't attach the NAS to routed network or switch.

I need to access the NAS from another AIX (system2) which has access to system1 (attached to the same switch).

system1:
en0: 10.1.1.1 # public routed network
en1: 169.254.0.1 # priovate network for NAS access pt2pt

system2:
en0: 10.1.1.2

NAS:
169.254.0.2
When I do on on system2:
route add -net 169.254.0.0 -netmask 255.255.255.0 10.1.1.1

then I can ping 169.254.0.1 but I can't ping 169.254.0.2

how to configure gated (/etc/gated.conf) on system1 to get 169.254.0.1 (NAS) accessible from system2?

I don't want to impact (loss) any other services and netowrks functionalities on both AIX systems...

thx in advance,P.
