Mark,

No, you have it wrong. FORDnet is being actively asserted as up via EGP
from DCN-GATEWAY, which it in fact really is. You are seeing IDMP
Destination Unreachable messages returned from FORDnet host FORD1,
since the particular subnet used by the offending host appears
down at that host, which is in fact a subnet gateway. The infrastructure
supporting connectivity to the offending host is presently working
correctly; however, your comments re the host itself are well taken.
Please direct your comments to John Nagle (jbn@ford-wdl1.arpa), who is the
responsible person for those Ford Aerospace hosts.

Dave
