Choosing a LAN based on the Destination IP address.

by ramusson / March 19, 2008 10:25 PM PDT

My computer has 2 LAN cards, one connected to a local Broadband and the other to my office network. I can access Internet thru' either of these.

Both the LAN cards have their IP's, Default Gateway addresses as well as the corresponding DNS.

All my Internet activity is normally thru' the local Broadband by manually setting the Interface Metric to 1 on this LAN card. The LAN card on my office network has been given a value of 2.

There in a particular program with Destination IP address valid only on the office network.

Is there a method of Directing traffic based on the Destination IP to a particular LAN card or Gateway so that this program will, by default, access the office network rather than the Broad Band?

I have gone thru' some search on Firewalls, Network Properties, etc; but I don't seem to have found a solution.

Right now, I solve the problem by Disabling the LAN card to my Broadband.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
