Windows Server route table problem

Hi,

I have a question. Im trying to get our exchange servers outbound email to go through our router default gateway.  The default gatway on the exchange serer is pointed to the router. I changed our router default gateway to 192.168.93.150 (our firewall).  I checked the ROUTE PRINT command on our exchange server and it had the route of below present. I deleted it (because it was going to our ISA server (192.168.93.155) and I want it to go to our firewall direct (192.168.93.150) for a test.

The problem is,  everytime I send an email on the exchange server the route below is added again.  I think this route is somehow persistant. How do  I check if it's presistant route or not? It comes back after each time I delete it.

Is it listed in the Advanced Settings for the TCP/IP properties on your NIC?  There's a default gateways area there that can have multiple routes listed.

When you issue the "route print" command, the output includes a "Persistent Routes" section under the "Active Routes" section.  Any persistent routes that have been created will be shown in there.

If it doesn't mantion the letter P at the beginning of the routing line, then it's not persistant. I guess this is rather of a static route. As gnar suggested, check the advanced properties of your NIC on your exchange server to see if there are multiple DG, which is crazy thing to do. Remove any DG within the advanced tab and add the desired DG on your NIC.
If you find nothing on your exchange server, then that means that your router is configures to forward everything to the ISA server. Make sure that you have the following on your router
0.0.0.0 255.255.255.255 192.168.93.150

Let me know.

tcp/ip properties:  the nic is pointing to our router 192.168.93.254 so that is working.

I have two nics teamed. the teamed nic properties only have on DG.  ROUTE PRINT returns "no persistant routes"

I'll need to check the router like suggested.
Thanks so far...

Could you check your router to see what is the routing line for the 0.0.0.0

Looks like our router had a static route still in it. We'll remove it.

Thanks!
