connect: Network is unreachable

So suddenly I was getting this weird error. Don’t know the exact reason. But some forum says it may happens because of having multiple NICs.

Anyway, then I checked $ sudo netstat -nr

Kernel IP routing table
Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags   MSS Window  irtt Iface
10.10.10.0      0.0.0.0         255.255.255.0   U         0 0          0 eth0

then run the following command

$ /sbin/route add -net 0.0.0.0 gw 10.10.10.1 eth0

and this time the result was different

0.0.0.0         10.10.10.1      0.0.0.0         UG        0 0          0 eth0
10.10.10.0      0.0.0.0         255.255.255.0   U         0 0          0 eth0

….tada!!! It started working!
