Default Using two Network Interface Cards

I'm running a evaulation version of Windows Server 2003. I have a registered version of FlashFXP 2.2 B-971.

I have two NIC cards in this box.

One nic card is connected to my linksys 8 port router for internal lan use.
The other NIC card is connected to my linksys 5 port switch. This I use for internet connections.

I have set the internet nic for TCP/IP only. disableing the networking protocols, because I dont want a path from my internet nic to my lan nic.

Now...I have my internal Lan nic set for networking only on my lan...I dont want it to have access to the internet...just the internal lan.

I relize this post is more towards netowrking setup...but my problem is...

I want Flash to use my internet NIC card only when I need to upload or download from the internet....and use my lan nic to transfer files between lan machines.

Is this even possible?

I hope somebody can steer me in some direction.

Thanks

I'm not very familiar with how this is done, but if your network is configured properly it should do this automatically.

The network interface is selected based on your network routing table.

I'm aware of the routing table...but I'm hoping I can get a few more idea's in this thread.


Is there not a way to bind a certain nic card to use just with flashFXP?

maybe in the ini file or a small batch or script file?

The latest beta release of FlashFXP has an ini only setting that lets you force which network card is used, however this network interface is used for all connections. So it really wouldn't help you. Configuring your network routing is key.

How do you set this up, my knowledge of networking is low.

i have one nic that goes to my router then the internet.
and one nic that i will be using a cross over cable to another pc.

i would like to tell flashfxp if the ip address to connect to is xxx.xxx.x.x then use this nic. if it anything else go the other way.

please could you help....

Please clairify, do you want just FlashFXP or all internet applications?

If you just want FlashFXP this isn't possible.

If you want all applications I'm afraid this is beyond my level of expertise.
