'Route' initialisation in logon problem

By ngunity ·
My network is running Win 95 clients that telnet into different Unix servers.
We recently had a new server added and a subsequent 'Route' line placed into the users logon script (they all use the same script).
All the workstations have been able to access the new Server through Telnet but one which had a virus corrupt it's 'Route.exe'. I have tried replacing the route.exe on the workstation only to receive the error message: "failed to initalise: 2" at logon.
Subsequently the client cannot telnet to the designated Server.

Can anyone tell me what the error message means or how to resolve the problem. All other telnetting to our Unix servers works but the new one.
I am thinking I'll try & re-install TCP/IP on the workstation. Thoughts?

I agree with your plan. I would do an uninstall, re-boot, then reinstall the TCP/IP stack. This should install a new copy of ROUTE.EXE as well as re-set any registry keys that might have been affected.

Re-installing TCP/IP was the key, copying 'route.exe' was unsuccessful whereas the re-installation resolved the problem.
