need routed configuration help

I'm not sure if this is the correct list, but I was informed that this list
is where all of the routing experts can be found, so I am sending this plea
for help to this list.
Basically, I need to confirm some configuration information and make sure
I've set up everything properly. I am seeing some very strange behavior
and need to rule out local misconfiguration as the cause. I am not a
routing expert, so I need confirmation.
We had to configure a customer's server to function in a co-location
facility (not of our choosing) that has a gateway IP address that is
outside of the locally defined network block (Class C).
The OS is FreeBSD 4.4. I did some digging and discovered that I needed to
enable 'routed' and create some static routes to the gateway IP outside of
the local network block to be able to reach the Internet.
I uncommented the
entry (IP has been changed to protect parties involved) in the rc.conf file
and added the
entry. I then added the following entries to the rc.local file:
route add default -interface 22.214.171.124 -netmask 255.255.255.252
route add -net 126.96.36.199 -interface 188.8.131.52 -netmask 255.255.255.252
route add default 184.108.40.206
I came up with these routes by trial and error, and am not convinced that
these are the correct entries to use.
I can reach the Internet and the nameserver (which is also outside of the
local network block), and can ping and traceroute without any problems.
But,... every once in a while certain programs start timing out and/or
take a really long time to respond (to the point of failure due to time-out
on the other end). Some of these programs are telnet, ssh, ftp, radius.
Other programs/protocols (such as http traffic) do not display the same
So, I am seeking advice on how to configure static routes correctly and/or
if some other issues may be causing this strange, intermitten behavior.
Please let me know if I implemented this incorrectly...
