Configure a Persistent Static Route on Windows Server 2003

Surprisingly, this is much like creating a static route on a Unix box.

1. Bring up a command window

2. Use the route command to view the current routing table

 route print

3. Add your route using route -p target_network mask netmask gateway_ip metric costmetric. Eg.

 route -p add mask metric 1

The -p makes it persistent, so if you just want to test, you can omit this and the route will disappear after a reboot. The metric is an integer cost metric (ranging from 1 through 9,999) to be used in calculating the fastest, most reliable, and/or least expensive routes. If costmetric is not specified, 1 is used.
