Two Ethernet Cards, One PC

By higginsj ·
How do I configure the routing table for a single PC with two Ethernet cards so that I can force the communication from one card through a HUB to a wrap connection back to the other PC card? This is for test purposes to check the communication paththrough the HUB. The PC presently wants to communicate to the other card across the backplane.

I assume that you are using Window's NT OS, use a Routing table just easy, perform this command:

route add source_ip mask subnet_mask Destination_IP

you can double check via the command - route print

Do have a try

Have a nice day,
Cheers!

I am using windows NT but so for have not been able to set up the routing table so that the communications will be forced through the external cable. I want to thank you for the comment though.

I doubt you'll be able to solve this through the routing table, since it's tough to get better than a connected route.

Instead, try using "ping -k" or "ping -j" to force source routing of your ping requests. Your router may block source-routed pings, so if it fails, you may need to tweak its config.
