I have a SiteProtector console which is running windows 2003 server. It has one NIC. I am putting this device in our DMZ and setting the default gateway to 10.100.24.2 but want any traffic for 10.0.0.0 or 170.230.0.0 to go to 10.100.24.1 gateway.
Device Network info is:
Static IP: 10.100.24.30
mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 10.100.24.2
DNS: 170.230.115.229

I have tried:
route add 10.0.0.0 mask 255.0.0.0 10.100.24.1
route add 170.230.0.0 mask 255.255.0.0 10.100.24.1
"The route addition failed: Either the interface index is wrong or the gateway does not lie on the same network as the interface. Check IP Address Table for the machine."

Try to specify the interface index, using the 'IF' command line parameter.
I understand there is only one physical NIC but ...

Add an IP Address to the NIC so that it has an address on both the 10.x.x.x network and the 170.230.x.x network

when I type route print the only interface besides 127.0.0.1 is 10003, so I put
route add 10.0.0.0 mask 255.0.0.0 10.100.24.1 IF 10003
I got the same error

This device is in the DMZ and the only IPs allowed in that network range is 10.100.24.0/24 addresses

I'll repeat:
Add an IP Address to the NIC so that it has an address on both the 10.x.x.x network and the 170.230.x.x network

You can't add a route when the machine has no logical way of getting there!

maybe I didnt make myself clear. So here is an image to help clarify things, hopefully. I need all of the 10.0.0.0 and 170.230.0.0 to go to 10.100.24.2 and all other traffic go to 10.100.24.1.

leew: the server is pointed  to 24.1 as default, so it can get to the internet just fine, I need it to get to the internal network. 170.230 address is not allowed to exist in the DMZ the 10.100.24 range. Diagram

The appliance had to be plugged into the network, even if the it is plugged into the wrong network range. I never tried this assuming that it wouldnt help since it had a static of 10.100.24.29 and was being plugged into a 170.230.38.0/24 network.

No one suggested even checking the NIC card on the device. I got the idea from a MSS engineer.
