Using eth1 for internal communication

In a linux webserver how can you setup two servers to communicate via eth1 rather than eth0. We wish to use eth1 for internal communication between our public webserver and our database server. So that we do not incurr charges on the public switch.

How can we do this?

If eth0 and eth1 are on different networks (eth1 on the local network), and you are trying to communicate with another machine on the local network, why would it be using eth0 at all? All traffic would be routed to the interface that is connected to the requested network.

Unless both interfaces actually are on the same network?
