# Windows – does this ROUTE ADD command fail

networkingroutingwindowswindows xp

route ADD 199.239.136.200 MASK 255.255.255.255 127.0.0.1 METRIC 10


The problem is that this command fails with the following error:

parameter is incorrect.

It doesn't say which parameter is incorrect. I probably violated an implied rule of networking basics but I don't know what it is. Any idea which parameter is incorrect and, more importantly, why?

Thanks.
