Hey, I have 2 subnets 10.0.1.0/24 10.0.2.0/24. Id like to have the ability of switching the gateways (dynamicly) without having to go to the network connections( yes I know all the connections will be dropped and thats fine ) Let me know if anyone is aware of such a utility.

Regards,
Tom

just run the following batch files to dynamically switch your gateway:

1.bat:
route add 0.0.0.0 mask 0.0.0.0 10.0.1.1 metric 1
route add 0.0.0.0 mask 0.0.0.0 10.0.2.1 metric 10

2.bat:
route add 0.0.0.0 mask 0.0.0.0 10.0.2.1 metric 1
route add 0.0.0.0 mask 0.0.0.0 10.0.1.1 metric 10

assume 10.0.1.1 and 10.0.2.1 are the gateways, then 1.bat is for switching to 10.0.1.0/24, 2.bat is for switching to 10.0.2.0/24.

hope it helps,
bbao

Thats almost exacly what I did, except I had to delete the old routes and add the new ones.

One more question, does setting the metric mean that if the first one is down it will go to the second one?

Thanks
