use of default gateway at the application level

consider the following setup
internet DSL router1 w/LAN IP up6.0/down384
internet DSL router2 w/LAN IP up3.0/down384
internet DSL router3 w/LAN IP up1.0/down384
each router connected to the same 4 port router
a single cable also connects the hub to a PC
the PC w/IPs of, and has 3 different default Gateways values assigned to the same nic:

the Q, when running different net based applications e.g., IE/FF or FTP, can we somehow assign a which default gateway the application should use?

thank you.

I don't see any reasons to change default gateway. Besides that how are you foing to resolve conflicts when you run multiple applications at the same time.

1. For Linux. Use iptables to forward different traffic to desired destination based on the port of the server.
2. Cisco router as middle point. Using routing-map. Does the same, matches traffic and forwards to desired destination.
3. Windows Vista should support it, but I'm not sure how to use it. Please see this article
