Manual, simplest possible setup, no RIP...
It was just that I went back & forth between oi151a and oi151a2, and the
route was there in 151a, and wasn't there in 151a2... BUT that can have
multiple explanations, I suppose.
I was wondering if there is any change specific to 151a2 that could or
should have this partic consequence.
No matter, route add default did the trick.
Funny bit is that the default route was obviously there for a minute or
two (things happened with mail that would require a default route), then
disappeared. So I'd just like to understand.
Still thanks for your patient interest.. :-)
