It's the OS kernel / networking stack that needs to know about the route.
The existence/lack of such a route is outside the concern of guacd, but a
route does need to exist for things to work.

>From guacd's perspective, there is simply an IP address and TCP port. Just
like any other remote desktop client, guacd will ask the OS to establish an
outbound TCP connection to that address and port. Whether that succeeds
depends on whether the system is reachable (a route exists) from the
network of the server hosting guacd.

You mentioned in an older email that you were going to try obtaining a PCAP
of the connection failure to see what might be going wrong at the network
level. How did that go?
