Now when I try to add this route "ip route 10.0.0.0 255.255.0.0 192.168.87.1" I get the error message "inconsistent address and mask. What am I doing wrong?

OOPs!!!! I am trying to add this route on the Cisco 2600 router. I forgot to say that.

Make sure the 2600 has "ip subnet-zero" enabled.

router(config)#ip subnet-zero
