Subject [GitHub] cloudstack pull request: Setup routes for RFC 1918 ip space
Date Fri, 11 Dec 2015 10:02:32 GMT
Github user remibergsma commented on the pull request:
    @terbolous I appreciate your worries, and I'll try to explain why I think there is nothing
to worry about.
    Right now, everything that has no specific route will go to the default gateway. The default
gateway is the gateway of the public interface. So, if the internal DNS server resolved ``
to `` the systemvm will send that to the gateway of the public network, which will
drop it because it won't accept RFC1918 space.
    With this change, it is routed to the internal gateway instead which may or may not be
able to reach it. If it can, this is a win. If it cannot, we have the same situation as we
have now.
    I tested the console and that works fine. The reason for this is, that routing in Linux
takes specific routes over more generic ones.
    If I set `` to the internal gateway, and `` or `` to another
interface (because it may be the secondary storage network or whatever) then this `/24` is
more specific than the `/8`. The routes I added act like a `catch-all` to try the internal
gateway before giving up.
    Hope this helps!
