Abstract

This invention provides a mechanism for a Windows 2000 Server* to automatically configure multiple independent static network routing paths to the same TCPIP network segment at system startup. By default, Windows 2000 will choose one adapter to be the gateway to that network segment at system startup. The command used to create persistent static routes does not allow the gateways to be specified, therefore, typical persistent static routes cannot be used.
