Windows: How to add static route

Generally, your computer will have a default gateway and all the packets are sent through default gateway when no other routes to the destination are known.

But did you know what each computer have a local routing tables which allow your to perform routing from the computer itself instead of doing routing at router. The routing table is used by TCP/IP to make decisions on whether to send the packet to a computer on the same segment, or to forward it to the default gateway.

To add a route we use the route ADD command to tell Windows which Network to add and then we enter the Subnet mask and Gateway.

For example, we’re on the 32.35.11.0 network and the default gateway is 32.25.11.254 and we want to add static route to our management server 10.10.8.28
