Controlling the Windows Routing table

    I am running Windows XP on a system that has two wireless network interfaces. I need to configure it so that all packets go over interface X with the exception of packets going to/from address a.b.c.d, which must go over interface Y. I have tried "route delete *" to wipe the table clean, but Windows appears to be protecting local network entries because the only entries it removes are the catchall entries. I want to effectively wipe the table and specify precisely what goes out via these two network adapters.


    Is there anyway that I can do this?

    Sadly, that does not remove all of the routes. Here is the routing table after route -f:

    You may give ICS a try... I somehow remember that it'll wipe the routing settings clean before writing it's own set of settings...
