The syntax is incorrect.  What is the route that you are trying to
establish?

Do a man route and scroll to the bottom for examples.  They should be of
the syntax.....

route add -net 192.168.10.0 x.x.x.1 where the first quad is the network
address and the second is the gateway to get to that network.

I have been trying to install a static route with the following command
on a RH5.1 system and get
the following :
route add 192.168.10.163 192.168.1.169
SIOCADDRT: Operation not supported by device
Does anyone know what it means and how I fix it. Does it mean
Ipforwarding is not enabled ?
Thanks
