IP forwarding Route/Host ?

I have a unix machine that operates some CNC machines, I need to hook up my windows machine through core ftp to load programs onto the box.

The card i need to route to for the FTP on unix is tu1

I need to check the routing tables on the unix box to see which IP address will automatically be routed to tu1. I tried to add the IP to the unix system by

route add -net xxx.xxx.x.xxx netmask dev tu1

but i get an error of invalid netmask

So unless someone has an idea i figure if i can see what IP adresses are aalready registered to tu1 i can just change the IP settings on my windows machine.

help would be greatly appreciated!

i came up with a solution!, in my windows tcip settings i added an additional ip with 128.1.xx.xxx rather than the 192.168.x.x that i needed to go through the servers domain
