Is it valid to have multiple default gateways associated with the same interface. I thought that didn't make sense, but I'm seeing this on my laptop
$ route Kernel IP routing table Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface 10.1.0.0 * 255.255.248.0 U 1 0 0 eth0 default 10.1.1.1 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 eth0 default 10.1.1.1 0.0.0.0 UG 202 0 0 eth0
The reason I ask is that in an embedded system we're developing for, we need to get the default gateway associated with a particular interface. Is this just a display issue where it's showing the same default gateway twice? Or does having multiple default gateways on 1 interface mean something that I should have to take into account.
