Sorry if this is a brain dead question. I searched the mailing lists and

google but could not find anything.


I have connected a WindowsXP machine to m0n0wall at home using the XP


My home network is a 10.x.x.x network with a netmask.

My work network is a 192.168.1.x networks with a netmask, with

a route to (among other things) a 10.y.y.y network with a


When I am connected (without using the router at home in the advanced tcpip

connection) I can access all the network at work with the exception of the

10.y.y.y network.


Looking in the routing table on the XP machine I see that it has inserted a route with a netmask of to my home network.

The following batch file will fix it.


route delete

route add 10.x.x.0 mask 10.x.x.<vpn server>


But if the connection is lost and windows does an auto connect its all bad



Any ideas how to fix this without the batch file?


Thanks in advance.
