Thanks to all who responded:

Everybody seemed to agree that the problem was within the /etc/netmasks
file. I went with some suggestions that I received from the list, but I
was told
by the vendor that they didnt want any more private addresses comming
their network. So throw all the configuration out and redo it with
addresses. All is working now and thanks again to everyone who responed.
