Why not? Such routes work perfectly here.
I also use them for my PPTP tunnel:
route add -net 126.96.36.199/24 dev ppp1
Works perfectly! I think it simply means: take all IP-packets with
destination 188.8.131.52/24 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.
