Why not? Such routes work perfectly here.

I also use them for my PPTP tunnel:

route add -net 1.2.3.4/24 dev ppp1

Works perfectly! I think it simply means: take all IP-packets with
destination 1.2.3.4/24 and send them out through interface ppp1.

We know such routes from local network-interfaces.


Actually, i also always thought, that i must specify a gateway. But it
seems, i was wrong.
