Adding an extra route to the ip routing table

In my college dorm, there is a file sharing network in the entire building. Problem is, there is only a manual for windows with the settings on how to connect... Smilie

They say that you have to give the following command in cmd in windows:

route add 172.16.71.0 mask 255.255.255.0 172.16.70.253 -p


Does anyone know how to translate that to terminal language of OS X?
If I typ the windows command in terminal, it says:

route: must be root to alter routing table

The goal of it, is that I can see, download and upload shared files with dc++ for mac.

Thanks in advance!

As the response says, you need to be root to do this.

So you first need to enable the root account and set password, try something like Enabling and using the "root" user in Mac OS X

Then you need to login as root somehow.

You can then either do "su -" to get to root, or alternatively try "ssh root@127.0.0.1".
