  1. Help with adding static route to NT 4.0 machine?

    I am NOT an NT person but I have someone with an NT 4.0 server on a
    subnet. This machine has TWO NIC cards and communicates with two
    subnets.

    I believe I must add a static route to reach a remote private submet
    device on one of the networks. I've tried the route add command in
    various flavors but I keep getting a "bad route" message.

    Can someone please respond with just how that command should be
    entered to accomplish the following?

    Local LAN subnet 192.168.250.x on primary NIC
    gateway router for this subnet 192.168.250.1

    The IP of the NT machine is 192.168.250.x

    The IP of the remote device we need to reach is 170.186.xxx.xxx

    I tried the command:
    "route add 170.186.xxx.xxx mask 255.255.255.0 192.168.250.1"

    Doesn't take.

    The second NIC inside the NT has the IP of 192.168.0.x and is used to
    access a different local LAN.

    Hopefully there is an extremely easy solution for us dummies?

    Thanks all.

    You should write
    "route add 170.186.xxx.xxx MASK 255.255.255.0 192.168.250.1"
    Notice that the "MASK" is a case sensitive.

    -P = persistence and will be remembered after reboot.

    Thank you Shai, I must be case sensitivity blind!
