Hi All,

I want to bypass a proxy server via 3g modem.

What I would like to do is have IE access sites via my normal LAN gateway and have firefox go through the 3g modem.

Any ides on how I could do this.

High points as this is important to me.

Thanks

I don't believe its possible on Windows, you can only BIND to one gateway at a time so whichever one you bind will be the one used by all internet traffic.

Browsers all use the same port (80 and 443 for the most part) traffic has to route to those ports for the browsers to work! Meaning browser traffic will route to the "open" gateway - one of them not both!

You have a few different options...
- you can either purchase a hardware router (ie. cisco, extreme)
- you can put two NIC's into a computer and run a linux distribution that is setup to do routing. A linux solution may be cheaper.
- you can setup vmware virtual machine on the host and install another OS instance with Firefox and point to second nic.

Still checking to see if a static route solution is possible on Windows.

If you created a proxy server, you could make the browser use a different gateway.

Hi,
Was hoping for a software/config solution.

Purchasing hardware isn't an option and I'm on a laptop so I can't install a second NIC.

Is application level routiong possible ona workstation?

The 3g card becomes the default gateway so you can config the routing to only use the card for external Ip addresses
