Data type Range Default value
REG_MULTI_SZ IPAddress[ IPAddress...] (A-space delimited list of dotted decimal IP addresses.) (Blank value.)


An ordered list of gateways that can be used as the default gateway for this system. Packets are sent to the default gateway when they are destined for a subnet to which this computer is not connected, or for there is no specific route.

At any time, only one gateway is the default gateway. The other gateways are used, in the order specified, when the system detects that the current default gateway is not operational (See EnableDeadGWDetect and TcpMaxDataRetransmissions).

If this entry contains a valid value, it overrides the value of DhcpDefaultGateway, which is configured by DHCP.
