You can add a Windows ROUTE to each destination network. Open a command window and type “route /?” for more information.

Manipulates network routing tables.

ROUTE [-f] [-p] [command [destination]
[MASK netmask] [gateway] [METRIC metric] [IF interface]

-f Clears the routing tables of all gateway entries. If this is
used in conjunction with one of the commands, the tables are
cleared prior to running the command.
-p When used with the ADD command, makes a route persistent across
boots of the system. By default, routes are not preserved
when the system is restarted. Ignored for all other commands,
which always affect the appropriate persistent routes. This
option is not supported in Windows 95.
command One of these:
PRINT Prints a route
ADD Adds a route
DELETE Deletes a route
CHANGE Modifies an existing route
destination Specifies the host.
MASK Specifies that the next parameter is the ‘netmask’ value.
netmask Specifies a subnet mask value for this route entry.
If not specified, it defaults to
gateway Specifies gateway.
interface the interface number for the specified route.
METRIC specifies the metric, ie. cost for the destination.

All symbolic names used for destination are looked up in the network database
file NETWORKS. The symbolic names for gateway are looked up in the host name
database file HOSTS.

If the command is PRINT or DELETE. Destination or gateway can be a wildcard,
(wildcard is specified as a star ‘*’), or the gateway argument may be omitted.

If Dest contains a * or ?, it is treated as a shell pattern, and only
matching destination routes are printed. The ‘*’ matches any string,
and ‘?’ matches any one char. Examples: 157.*.1, 157.*, 127.*, *224*.
Diagnostic Notes:
Invalid MASK generates an error, that is when (DEST & MASK) != DEST.
Example> route ADD MASK IF 1
The route addition failed: The specified mask parameter is invalid.
(Destination & Mask) != Destination.


> route PRINT
> route ADD MASK METRIC 3 IF 2
destination^ ^mask ^gateway metric^ ^
If IF is not given, it tries to find the best interface for a given
> route PRINT
> route PRINT 157* …. Only prints those matching 157*

CHANGE is used to modify gateway and/or metric only.
> route PRINT
> route DELETE
> route PRINT

So, for your use you would type something like:

route add xx.xx.xx.xx (bloomberg) MASK 255.255.x.x yy.yy.yy.yy (gateway to bloomberg) IF 1
route add xx2.xx2.xx2.xx2 (internet) MASK 255.255.x2.x2 yy2.yy2.yy2.yy2 (gateway to internet) IF 1

    What is the default route on the device? If you go to a command window and type route print, what are the results? Does your device have multiple IP addresses assigned to it? From the information you provided, please test these first on a non-production device: route add mask route add mask This will route all traffic bound for Bloomberg to the router. All other traffic (internet) will go to the device.
