I have the following entry in a redhat linux machine to reject the private network route:

Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags Metric Ref    Use Iface        -             !         -   -      -   -

Now I want to delete this entry but I cannot delete it using route del command.

sudo route del -net netmask
SIOCDELRT: No such process

Can anyone please help me to delete this route?
