Hello there,
I have access to 2 different internet connections....
1. NIC1 ---> Wired LAN with Gateway with ISP1
2. USB WiFi dongle ---> Public Wireless AP with ISP2

and I need to use each connection with different programs...

for example...
VPN, usenet, torrent ...etc through my primary connection on NIC1...
Firefox and Skype exclusively through the Public Wireless AP and never through NIC1 even if the WiFi is not connected...

I tried ForceBindIP it didn't work...

i think this can be done by setting a proxy server that can choose which connection to use.... but i cant find one that works that way...

the only way i get to use the wireless connection for browsing and skype while using the NIC1 for other applications is through a VMware Machine...

any help?

Thanks in advance...

Please Note that what I need is NOT combining the 2 connections NOR load balancing NOR Failover...

Why don't you disable one connection while useing the other.
