specifying ethX

I am using SSH on a server that is simultaneously connected to two networks. My goal is to able to open up an SSH session, and force ssh to connect over eth1, not eth0 as it defaults to. Is there an easy way to accomplish this?

Thanks very much

Are the two networks actually the same network? If you're trying to connect to a host on a network that's only accessible via eth1, linux will send the packets via eth1. What does the route command say?
