tcpip set route

Hello,

Here are my current defined routes:

TCPIP> sho route

DYNAMIC

Type Destination Gateway

AN 0.0.0.0 10.7.8.1
AN 10.7.8.0/24 10.7.8.214
AH 10.7.8.214 10.7.8.214
AH 127.0.0.1 127.0.0.1
AN 172.18.20.0/24 172.18.20.111
AH 172.18.20.111 172.18.20.111
AN 192.168.254.0/24 192.168.254.10
AH 192.168.254.10 192.168.254.10
TCPIP>


I add an additional route similar to this route:

AN 172.18.20.0/24 172.18.20.111

How do I format the set route command to add a route for 172.16.20.0/24?

I can not figure how to format the command. Any help would be appreciated.

Here are some more details you may want:

TCPIP> sho ver

The current version of VMS is:
OpenVMS V8.3-1H1

Thanks,
Mike

Re: tcpip set route

Could you elaborate on what part(s) of the TCPIP> HELP SET ROUTE help text or the route stuff in the manuals are causing confusion, or what you've tried, or what errors you've received? (That'll help us tailor the answer...)

Here's some documentation on this:

http://www.openvms.compaq.com/doc/732final/6526/6526pro_005.html

The general format is:

TCPIP> SET ROUTE destination
[/NETWORK]
[/MASK= bitmask]
/GATEWAY= host
[/PERMANENT]

Probably:

TCIPIP> SET ROUTE 172.18.20.0 /MASK=24 /NETWORK /GATE=172.18.20.111 /PERMANENT

Though I don't have a box to try this right now.

Re: tcpip set route

I didn't have the syntax correct for the /mask switch.

You example worked perfectly.

Thanks!
