I'm connecting an embedded device to a PC, so that the PC can
access the GUI (web interface) of the device. Th link local
address has the advantage, that there is very little
configuration necessary for the end user and no address conflict
will happen with the LAN of the user. For this no routing is
necessary. However, in some situations it would be a nice extra
if the PC could act as a router to e.g. a software repository.

I can set the gateway manually on the device and it works fine
(even if not intended by the IP standards), but at least the
network-manager applet lacks, it seems, any settings for this.
(NM applet is not used on the embedded device, but I used it as
a tool to create NM configuration files.)

Can't this device work with DHCP?
