View Full Version : [ubuntu] Multiple Network Interfaces - Isolation Mode

June 7th, 2008, 08:28 PM

I have a server that has two ethernet interfaces and I also have 2 ISP Connections. After some research, I have found out that I can use both cards on the same machine (http://www.linux.com/feature/133849) but I think I am more interested in "Isolation" mode than a bonding mode.

What I want is this:
1) A torrent application is the ONLY app to access connection A through router A
2) File System has access to connection B through router B

Basically, I want my torrents to download from my dsl only, while all the other computers on my network will use my cable connection. The box acts as a media server too so I want the cable-connected computers to be able to access the File System on the box.

It seems that "Isolation" mode might be what I am looking for but I haven't been able to find a walkthrough to do what I need.

Can anybody help?
