    Question HELP!!! a bug in route or what?

    I have encountered a strange problem.
    I used to be able to access our network printer at in my office. However, after I started a VPN of my school, the routing table is changed by VPN, so I can no longer access the printer. And thus, I need to manually add the printer IP into routing table. I tried 2 methods:
    route add -net netmask dev eth0

    route add -net netmask dev eth0

    By right, both should work. However, it turns out that only Method 2 works. I also know that all internal IPs in our school does not starts with 10.*, in other words, VPN should not have interfered with IPs starting with 10.*. Any reason???

    It looks like your "10." network is layed out as a "" (this is quite common). Meany that the netmask is "" or "/24".

    Also you could do:
    route add -host eth0
