Oh no - the host stack only has a route to 44... network - there is no
44 IP on the host.

No - it should not be - network rules are being accurately followed
The only way to get to 44... as a FROM IP (without re-writing jnos to
share the host stack) is thru NAT as far as I know.

- and I'll leave automation to developers.
I'm headed for enough examples that learning what is "right for me" can
be done from comparison with what has been "right for several others".

Oh come on - only if you include minutia like specific IP numbers do the
options count become truly large.
The sad part in this is that manufacturer and model of equipment does
