Listing the Routing Table:
Now on my machine, this equates to the following output:
18.104.22.168 dev eth0 scope link 22.214.171.124/24 dev eth0 proto kernel scope link src 126.96.36.199 default via 188.8.131.52 dev eth0
The first line:
184.108.40.206 dev eth0 scope link is the route for the interface
The second line:
220.127.116.11/24 dev eth0 proto kernel scope link src 18.104.22.168 Is the route that says everything that goes to 22.214.171.124 needs to go out 126.96.36.199.
The third line:
default via 188.8.131.52 dev eth0 is the default route.
Now that we have walked through a basic routing table, lets see how we use it. First read the Policy routing text. If you get confused, don't worry -- it is a confusing text. It will give you the run down on everything that the new routing code can accomplish.
