I am trying to find a way to manage the NICs that I have with a batch
file that runs on startup. I am not sure of the correct way to do
this under XP. I need to delete a default route for one of the NIC
cards as it is for a private internal network and keep the default
route for the NIC card used to access the Internet.
I can manage the necessary route commands to delete the route and have
set up some perisistent routes for the private network. However, I am
just not sure where to place the .bat file I have created so that it
runs when the computer starts up before any of the users log in. I
need to have this run all the time prior to anyone logging in so the
routes are set.
I have tried placing this in all start up folders but this just
doesn't do what I want and it can't be run by some of the users anyway
because of permissions.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have scanned the newsgroups
and have not seen this issue. Any other ideas about how to do this
differently would be appreciated as well. Thanks.
