Multiple NICs + Applications


I am on a laptop with multiple NICs and connections active/configured. How do I control which connection a given application uses? The only application that I know of that supports this is ping, but I would like to generalize this if possible.

My specific problem is that I have a VPN client that gets confused over which connection to tunnel over, which is significant in my case. Also, firefox et al. try to connect over a inactive connection when another NIC is active.

Any help appreciated,

this is an example: If you want to connect to and use the tunnel connected by eth1

route add -net netmask gateway eth1
