SCO Unix TCP/IP and NFS FAQ

I've removed advertising from most of this site and will eventually clean up the few pages where it remains.

While not terribly expensive to maintain, this does cost me something. If I don't get enough donations to cover that expense, I will be shutting the site down in early 2020.

If you found something useful today, please consider a small donation.

This article is from a FAQ concerning SCO operating systems. While some of the information may be applicable to any OS, or any Unix or Linux OS, it may be specific to SCO Xenix, Open There is lots of Linux, Mac OS X and general Unix info elsewhere on this site: Search this site is the best way to find anything.

Why does this "224" route show up in netstat -r? What's this 127 address? (Old Sco Unix)

It's OK- that's normal. The 224 network is the "multicast" network. It's the network used for broadcasting the same content to multiple machines anywhere in the world.

The 127 address is also normal- every machine can refer to itself using that address.

You aren't broken and there's nothing wrong.
