  • Static Routes on Win XP

    Im having some problems getting my head around static routes on (Windows based systems). Would I be right in thinking the route needs to be added onto the client PC which is trying to access a server on another subnet?

    Here’s my computer which is unable to access the server

    CLIENT PC
    Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:

    Connection-specific DNS Suffix . : ccm-ca.local
    Description . . . . . . . . . . . : Intel(R) PRO/100 VE Network Connection
    Physical Address. . . . . . . . . : 00-19-DB-81-20-C9
    Dhcp Enabled. . . . . . . . . . . : Yes
    Autoconfiguration Enabled . . . . : Yes
    IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.10.100
    Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
    Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.10.252
    DHCP Server . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.10.252
    DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.2.4

    SERVER
    Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:

    Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :
    Description . . . . . . . . . . . : Intel(R) 82575EB Gigabit Network Connection
    Physical Address. . . . . . . . . : 00-30-48-B9-47-3C

    DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.2.4
    192.168.2.5


    What would the route need to be?

    Can't your gateway do the routing to the correct subnet?

      As Dumber says, the easiest way by far is to add a route on the client gateway (192.168.10.252) to the 192.168.2.x subnet.

      Looks like a hardware router judging from the DHCP lease time, and the fact it's not doing DNS, but any router that isn't completely useless will have the facility to add a route.

        What is your Gateway?
        The best, easiest and most advisable way is to let your gateway to the routing, it is supposed to.

        but anyway if you want to test the communication.
        Client
        route add 192.168.2.0 mask 255.255.255.0 192.168.10.252 -p
        server
        route add 192.168.10.0 mask 255.255.255.0 192.168.2.56 -p
