Dual Wan Router

I have two WAN connections into the network, they are segmented by giving some computers reservations in DHCP.  Thats all working fine.  However, we have a secure VPN that uses the other router and we use RDP to access that VPN to that secure connection.  That uses the primary router - .1

Is there a way to make someone who is using the secondary router - .111 to use .1 when calling this application?  Or RDP ing to that address?

Thanks

you need to use the following format:
route ADD  192.168.1.100 MASK 255.255.255.0 192.168.1.8


this is just an example.

If you are using the Windows vOS try the route command to route the correct IP packets to the corresponding gateway IP.

When I try this it says "bad gateway address gateway"

I go to cmd
route add (RDP address) netmask (RDP subnet mask) gateway (desired gateway .1)

Now i get bad gateway address netmask.

I know the subnet is 255.255.255.0 for the desired address, that is also our internal DG

route ADD 192.168.201.xxx MASK 255.255.255.0 192.168.1.1

says the route addition failed:  Teh specified mask parameter is invalid (Destination & Mak) != Destination.

However if I do this

route ADD 192.168.201.0 MASK 255.255.255.0 192.168.1.1 it adds the route.  and that is what the solution was.  Points to you.
