On Windows 7 I have been using the command route add to add routing entries with a gateway. I now want to add a routing entry with no gateway, where the route is directly reachable.

Windows 7 calls such routes "on-link". I have tried creating on-link routes using the route add command and omitting the gateway entry, but that hasn't worked.

How can I create an on-link route in Windows 7?

You need to put 0.0.0.0 in the gateway entry to create an "on-link" route.

For example, enter the following command in cmd.exe or bash:

route add 10.10.10.100 mask 255.255.255.0 0.0.0.0
