I would suggest adding the following route:

$ multinet set /route /add=(dest=132.181.2.44,gate=127.0.0.1)

This type of route will automatically be added in MultiNet 5.1

$ mu show /version

I have just configured a secondary interface pd0 (132.181.2.44) on
network interface se0 (132.181.2.37).

NET-CONFIG>show

Official Host Name: cantvx.canterbury.ac.nz
Default IP Route: 132.181.2.254
Domain Nameserver: 127.0.0.1
Timezone: NZST
Timezone Rules: NEWZEALAND
Load UCX $QIO driver: TRUE
Load PWIP (Pathworks) driver: TRUE

It all seems to work except that the local host can't reach that
address. Any other host on the network can, but not the local host.

I do not have a local_routes.com.

The routing table shows:

MultiNet IP Routing tables:
Destination Gateway Flags Refcnt Use Interface
MTU
---------- ---------- ----- ------ ----- ---------
----
LOCALHOST LOCALHOST Up,Host 41 196 lo0
4168
DEFAULT-GATEWAY 132.181.2.254 Up,Gateway 1 972 se0
1500
132.181.2.0 CANTVX.CANTERBUR Up 6 354 se0
1500

I have temporarily "fixed" the problem by manually defining a new route:

$ mu set /route /add=(dest=132.181.2.44,gate=132.181.2.44,interface )

For reasons I don't understand the "interface" option is required to
make this work. After this things work fine.

The routing table now shows:

Cantvx> mu show/route
MultiNet IP Routing tables:
Destination Gateway Flags Refcnt Use Interface
MTU
---------- ---------- ----- ------ ----- ---------
----
LOCALHOST LOCALHOST Up,Host 41 200 lo0
4168
132.181.2.44 132.181.2.44 Up,Host 1 19 pd0
1500
DEFAULT-GATEWAY 132.181.2.254 Up,Gateway 1 2228 se0
1500
132.181.2.0 CANTVX.CANTERBUR Up 4 566 se0
1500


Have I gone about this the right way? I was a bit surprised I had to
manually add a route for the ip0 address, especially with that strange
"interface" parameter which the documentation says is not normally used.
