What static route configuration (as shown by command line "route PRINT"):

  1. Network Destination
  2. Netmask
  3. Gateway
  4. Interface
  5. Metric

could be used to reach a specified static route (web proxy) in the Intranet, giving that:

  1. Subnet Mask = 255.255.255.255
  2. Gateway = BLANK

for a computer in a flat LAN.

I tried Netmask 255.255.255.255 and Gateway 0.0.0.0 (on link) but when trying to ping the web proxy destination IP, it says Network Destination Unreachable!

Any thoughts?

    The mask you are using says that every bit of the IP address is network which means there are no hosts. Try a mask of 0.0.0.0 which means that every bit of the IP address is host. All of this assumes one network with no router / outside connections. – dbasnett Oct 19 '10 at 12:05

Perhaps I do not understand the question, but if you are trying to reach a resource on the same local network segment, then you do not need a route at all. It should compare the destination address with your subnet mask, determine it is on the local network segment and directly send to that device

you need 0.0.0.0 for the mask as well if it is the default route

you need to put your gateway as network destination
