Route Add Command, returns "Manipulates network routing tables." followed by the DOS route.exe help information.

Could gpedit.msc affect route.exe's ability to function, at one point I hardend the system and I think it might be affecting my ability to change the routing table.

Does anyone have any ideas? Thank You.

By the sounds of it, you just got the syntax of the command wrong. Could you show the route add command you tried to run? – Azz Mar 22 '11 at 12:07

That is the normal output when you just type route add. It is expecting additional parameters (destination, gateway, netmask, metric, network interface..).
