Dual network connection routing

Hi folks,

I have a laptop with a corporate T1 connection and my own mobile network card on it. My corporate connection is locked down pretty tight and wont allow for things like streaming audio, etc... Is there a way to route traffic like this (or anything else I want to bypass the corporate connection and firewall on) to my mobile card and have everything else utilitze the T1/firewalled connection without the use of any external routers and such?

Thanks.

The last sentence of my message was a little misleading... I didn't mean using the corporate line without a router... obviously I meant I just want to be able to do this all internaly by managing TCP/IP settings and such or whatever I would have to do...

The common sense answer would be to ask your administrators to carry this task out for you ..... If the connection is locked down then it is not for us to try to break your company policy.

However, if it was my own laptop, and I had my own Internet connection available through a second card, I would be identifying my internal network IP addresses and putting a route statement in for these whilst sending all else off through my mobile card.

For example, if i know that my internal network was all on 172.30.16.0/24 then I would be changing my default gateway to be on my second card and removing it from my primary card then adding

route -p add 172.30.16.0 mask 255.255.255.0 ip_address_of_normal_gateway
Only use the -p option if you want the laptop to remember the settings

It is the intention of the corporation to restrict audio streaming to preserve bandwidth but I appreciate the diplomatic answer. I will look into your suggestion and see what I can come up with.
