Adding a static route

I'm trying to add a static route, which I can see
with the command ping.

The problem is that I don't know the metric

when using the command

route add name_route new_address metric ??

Any idea,,,. thanks in advance...

You don't need to use metric... use: route add [-net|-host] <address> <gateway>

I hope it helps...

In normal cases you dont need to set the metric. Just set it to 1...

Are you sure you need to specify the metric? Usually a metric is specified when there is more than one route to a destination. The metric would be used to perfer one route over another. With only one gateway to a destination, you should specify 1 as the metric. I think this is the default.

Have you tried creating the route without specifying a metric? Are you able to reach your destination? If the route is to a different network, you may need to use the -net option and specify a mask.
