machine has two nics, but instead of connections to 192.168.170.105 being made via 192.168.170.99 on the local subnet they go via another interface.

what do I need to change? I need to be able to connect to 192.168.170.105 on the local subnet otherwise the tool I am trying to use will not work...

Tracing route to 192.168.170.105 over a maximum of 30 hops

route delete 0.0.0.0 192.168.17.
route add 192.168.170.0 mask 255.255.255.0 192.168.170.99

easier to just change the metrics from auto and assign the x.x.170.x nic to have a lower metric

That very open persistent route is gonna kill everything else. Somebody went and declared static routed that shouldn't have been declared.
