Hi all,

Been browsing for a while and have been unable to find an answer by searching old threads, so here goes:

I have a Mac Pro quad 2.66 GHz, I have both ethernet devices active and can make connections on both. My question is, I want to force my browser to use a particular interface (port). My situation, I use my mac at work and I want to have Safari run through Ethernet 1 so that I can access my company LAN and I want to use another browser like Camino on Ethernet 2 which has a proxy set.

I would like to do my personal web-surfing through a browser that runs through an SSH tunnel to my home, thus my traffic is unfiltered and is being encrypted.

I have my proxy (via SSH dynamic port forwarding) setup on Ethernet 2, now I just need to know how to force a browser to use Ethernet 2 instead of Ethernet 1. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance
QUOTE Thanks
