You can use the "P" switch for the Route command which allows a user to make persistent entries in the routing table by adding a static route directly to the registry. The use of the "P" switch is covered in the online command reference but is not in the printed TCP/IP reference.

route -p add 22.214.171.124 mask 255.255.255.0 126.96.36.199
