Directing traffic through multiple interfaces


Hey,

I did a search, and perhaps I'm using the wrong terms, or this is not possible. Networking is not one of my greater strengths, and would appreciate if someone could point me to a tutorial for the following:

AT work, I have a PC connected to the company intranet, no internet connectivity. I boot the machine using a USB stick with a Debian live image. What I would like to do is boot to Debian and connect a USB cellular device to use the internet. Right now I can do this by toggling the devices on and off through GNOME's network manager when I need or want to use each.

What I would like, is if I visit a site in my browser on the company intranet (company.com) or by IP to be routed through the internal NIC, and all other traffic through my USB device. How would I go about doing this? I had checked out using route, but I am not all that familiar with it (like I said above).

Once again, if it can be done, if such a HOWTO exists a link would be greatly appreciated.

Just check with your company IT department. They will be happy to explain things to you.

Not that they know about Linux anyway. I use the net during my downtime, like lunch on the off occasion I get one, but I get your drift - not that I can find a policy against. Thanks.

There is a policy. It's called "Don't do anything that makes us fire you on the spot".

Dude, I said I got your drift. It was a foolish thing to think of, and I'm marking this done.
