Ok,

Here's the deal.  I have a server with crazy routes that shouldn't be there.  Whent I do a route print on my Win2k Server, a crap load of IP's shoot out.  I wanna clear this all out, as it should not contain a route for each and every IP out there.  How do i do this?  I also can't reinstall the TCP/IP stack as I only have PcAnywhere access to the machine.

Thx.

You can remove them one by one, with the command
route delete <ipaddress>

If you can't drop your ipstack, this is as far as i know the only way to clean it up. If you are unsure of which routes you can delete, you can post a ROUTE PRINT here along with an IPCONFIG /ALL, and we can tell you what is safe to delete.

I think the command you're looking for is "route -f"

If you're using a Windows NT/2000 machine as a router, it's a good practice to schedule a job to execute soon after the machine starts running the route -f command, followed by route add commands for all of your static routes.

Why do the routes stay in the tables?  We have 10 of these machines and some of the tables are 'clean' while others keep routes in.
