Adding Route in AIX

I need some help in adding a route for a new AIX RS6000 server. I have copied and pasted the route information from an existing server. The IP address of the server listed below is The IP address of the server being added is

Try this IBM - AIX doc on communications and networks.

About half way down it shows:

Adding a Static Route - smit mkroute - route add destination gateway

The destination value is the dotted decimal address or symbolic name of the destination host or network, and the gateway value is the dotted decimal address or symbolic name of the gateway. (A default route specifies 0 as the destination.)
