Persistent Routes: None

C:\>route -p add x.x.x.x mask 
The route addition failed: Either the interface index is wrong or the gateway 
does not lie on the same network as the interface. 
Check the IP Address Table for the machine.

I can't add the above routing. Why?

I am assuming x.x.x.x is something you replaced for confidentiality and was a proper IP-address in the original command. is on a different network, the gateway must be on the same network.

Your local netmask is probably correct (mask for subnet

Are your sure the third octet (96 not 12) of your gateway is correct?
