I have a SCO Unix box on my network that was never properly configured and I'm trying to fix that.  I was able to get DNS happening (created /etc/resolv.conf).  

The problem I'm having now is with the default gateway.  

I've tried the following command:

  route add default -net <router ip address> 0

but I still can't traceroute or ping anything outside my network.  I get a DNS lookup no problem, but ping returns "no route to host"
