Network looks something like this: PC (10.65.68.100) ---- Router (10.65.68.1/10.65.67.1) --- Router (10.65.67.67) --- Destination (10.0.1.100) I use something like this: route -p add 10.0.1.00 mask 255.255.255.0 10.65.67.67 My router knows the way to 10.65.67.67, as evidenced by my ability to ping it. I tried adding metric 2 and metric 3 as well. If I come from the 10.65.67.67 segment, the route works fine, but it doesn't like me adding routes to other segments, even if I can reach those segments easily. Thanks.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You should not need to add routes to your client computer unless there is a reason the default gateway does not know a route to the network. In fact, the route add you show above would not know how to use it since you are not on the same network as the 10.65.67.67 device. Maybe try route -p add 10.0.1.0 mask 255.255.255.0 10.65.68.1. The 10.65.68.1 device is on the same subnet as your client and therefore your machine knows how to get to that device/network.
