HELP!!! a bug in route or what?
I used to be able to access our network printer at 10.217.132.13 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 10.0.0.0 netmask 255.0.0.0 dev eth0
route add -net 10.217.132.13 netmask 255.255.255.255 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 "10.217.132.0" (this is quite common). Meany that the netmask is "255.255.255.0" or "/24".
Also you could do:
route add -host 10.217.132.13 eth0
