    Just been doing a little practice on my testing network. Has anyone noticed that if you add a static route to the routing table using a command prompt, e.g. route add 192.168.3.0 mask 255.255.255.0 192.168.1.1, and then open up the Static routes node in the RRAS MMC, the route you've just added doesn't show up? Could prove confusing...

    Have you tried adding the 'persistent' option when adding the route? Haven't used RRAS for a while, but if I remember rightly, the route doesn't show up until after rebooting - and if you haven't used the -p option it won't be there when you restart

    Certainly in XP pro you have to use the -p switch. I have done this on a machine at work which has a weird routing table to get its job done.
