Hi all- Can someone tell me how to specify a netmask for a static route from a DHCP server? I've configured a dhcp server (solaris) to serve information on static route configurations to our dhcp clients. I got the server to serve the static routes (via the StaticRt symbol).  Works great.    Now the only problem is that my DHCP clients (i.e. windoze2k) are setting a netmask of for the routes.  In other words, I'm setting via DHCP that the address is routed through with the sincere hope that the dhcp clients will use the netmask for that static route.  No such luck.  The netmask is  How can this be solved?
Thanks for any help!

Best regards,
