ROUTE.exe – Windows CMD Command

Manipulate network routing tables. Route packets of network traffic from one subnet to another by modifying the route table.

Note that routes added to the table are not made persistent unless the -p switch is specified. Non-persistent routes only last until the computer is rebooted.

Symbolic names used for Destination_Host are looked up in the network database file NETWORKS.

The symbolic names for gateway are looked up in the host name database file HOSTS.

If the command is PRINT or DELETE. Destination or gateway can be a wildcard (‘*’), or the gateway argument can be omitted.

An IP address mask of 0.0.0.0 means everything. (rather like the *.* wildcard). In other words it says: When matching this pattern, don’t worry about matching any of the bits – everything matches.

If Destination_Host contains a * or ?, it is treated as a shell pattern, and only matching destination routes are printed. The ‘*’ matches any string, and ‘?’ matches any one char.
