Route addition problem


G

Guest

I have a windows 2003 server with two nics (10.16.47.100 and 10.16.47.101)
with static ip's with the same default gateway(10.16.47.1).

The following command works fine:
route add 10.88.75.32 MASK 255.255.255.255 10.16.47.100

but this does not:
route add 10.88.75.32 MASK 255.255.255.255 10.16.47.101
The route addition failed: The parameter is incorrect.

IPCONFIG /ALL shows the following:

this is route order issue. we don't know why you have two NICs point to the same subnet, but, 10.16.47.100 always the first from metric which is 1

I need two NICs pointing to the same subnet because I need to route traffic
to certain machines on our WAN over a specific NIC. More specifically, the
application on the remote machine must recieve connections from a specific IP.

Any ideas on how to resolve this? Should I change the metric on 10.16.47.100
to something higher than 1 ?
Thanks!

What you are setting up is a host route to a particular machine. You
cannot have two identical routes to it with the same metric using different
interfaces. They are contradictory. The machine must use one or the other.
It cannot use both!
