Routed loosing default route.

I've a machine running routed, it's a Debian 2.0. The problem is, that machine is connected to another machine that I have no access at all... Cause it's on a University network. So, I think that the routed daemon on the other side is misconfigured so it keeps sending broken routes to my machine... The routed daemon on my machine keeps loosing its default route (that by the way is the other machine). So I have a little experience at all with networking and I wanted to know if there's a way of stopping that annoying thing... I've to set it up manually and after a few days the route is removed.

If the default route disappearing completely it is  likely to be a networking problem where the IP of the default router becomes unreachable for a while. The routing code will drop the default route if the router isn't reachable.

First of all jlevie, I think you answered another linux question I had... :P but, if that's the problem... the default route is unreachable... is there anyway I can that behaviour so it doesn't remove... or the only workaround is to have an script that adds it again. If so, what is the better approach to do that script??

If the route is disappearing because the link occasionally drops momentarily the only work around that I know of would be to periodically run a script that checks for a default route and re-creates it as necessary.
