ip routing RRS feed

  • Question

  • G'day,

    I have set up a PPTP connection to a clients server. I have routed an ip to a specific address and made it persistent with the -p at the end in cmd and it all works well. I check the route print table and it is shown under the persistent route section.

    Once I disconnect the PPTP connection and then reconnect, for some reason the routed ip which is meant to be persistent is disconnected and I am unable to ping it, it shows in the route print table as being there and being persistent. I have to delete the route and re add it and then it works fine. I have created a bat file to make this process quicker but it is annoying to say the least.

    I have read all kinds of posts about setting up a config file under /etc but still don't know how to do it.

    I do not wish to keep the PPTP connection active all the time as I only need it when im working on that project.

    So if someone might be able to help me configure the ip route so when the PPTP is connect it automatically sets up the ip route it would be appreciated.

    Cheers

  • Guowen,

    I am able to connect to the PPTP. The issue is the persistent routing of an ip address as stated in my original question.

    Cheers
