is there a way within windows 2000 or windows xp with 2 network cards to direct tcp traffic? both network cards have internet access but different bandwidths. i want to be able to make sure the pc sends certain web sites through one of the interfaces because it has a greater bandwidth. I need to be able to direct www.msn.com to one interface and know it will go there. i do not have to direct all traffic just a handful of web sites. the other sites i dont care which interface they use. thanks all.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Yes and no. First you said ‘send’ sites thru specific interfaces and that is readily done by choosing IP binding when you setup the website. Then you said ‘msn.com’ which is not your website and therefore you are talking about routing incoming sites to specific adapters – NO. If this is the firewall then yes you set routing table entries. But you said XP implying personal workstation, so why do you have two NIC’s in a personal workstation. Optimal setup is to take the best NIC and simplify your network which will do much more for operability than double homing a workstation. The two internet connections with different bandwidths could be bridged by an external device – check Linksys/NetGear for that information.
