try

any net 192.168.2.0 netmask 255.255.255.224 gw 192.168.2.3

in your /etc/sysconfig/static-routes file

Though I'm not sure why you'd want to have a static
route that points to a local interface, just set the
subnet of the interface to 255.255.255.224 and you
don't need a static route.

I use that syntax and it works fine..
