IP Routing Issue - How to manually set a defualt static IP route for a particular program RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Recently I changed my ISP and my latency on an application went too high to be able to work properly. I found the reason being that the packets are being routed around the world to US (while I am in India) when the app server is in Singapore.

    So whenever the app connects to the server, instead of connecting to Singapore server my ISP routes the traffic to an US server which routes it back to Singapore causing re-routing to packets when it is not required.

    Wanted to know if there is a way I could hard wire the Ip route to Singapore IP for a particular app while other apps stay unaffected.

    I have tried disabling NAGLE algorithm but that makes no difference as the issue is with routing path. 

    Please let me know if any additional information is required.

    PS : Also could not find the appropriate forums to ask this question, if any mods could move this over to Networking section.

    Thanks & Regards,
