I need to find the default gateway in a openvpn scenario where the route output looks like that:
IPv4 Route Table =========================================================================== Active Routes: Network Destination Netmask Gateway Interface Metric 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 10.49.73.1 10.49.73.24 10 0.0.0.0 126.96.36.199 10.8.0.1 10.8.0.2 30
So I googled around a bit and a found this script here:
@For /f "tokens=3" %%* in ( 'route.exe print ^|findstr "\<0.0.0.0\>"' ) Do @Set "DefaultGateway=%%*" echo %DefaultGateway%
This works, but matches both lines in the route output.
But I need to find this line:
0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 10.49.73.1 10.49.73.24 10
So I tried to modify the findstr parameter like this:
in the expectation that '.' will match for the tab between the columns. But it doesn't. It will still set DefaultGateway to 10.8.0.1
I couldn't find a clue in MS documentation either. Maybe someone knows the right expression? Thanks a lot.
