Plus anyone who has itunes installed on windows has these routes
maintained as well, right??
Since it's such a good chance, would you mind checking if my
understanding of the two routes is on track? ...
-- route add default dev eth0 metric 99 --
This makes sure that data bound for routable addresses is dumped via
eth0 even when we only have a ipv4ll address, as the routable
addressed host should be able to respond to us. As such, it only
needs to be set when we have our ipv4ll address set.
-- route add -net 169.254.0.0 netmask 255.255.0.0 dev eth0 metric 99 --
This ensures that we respond to ipv4ll addressed hosts even when we
have a routable address set. Therefore, it should be set by default
