Can you add a static route forin XP and bind to a network interface?

Hi

We have a server with two network interfaces, Both interfaces have the same gateway.

I need to push traffic destined for a particular IP address at a remote location over Eth1 (all other normal traffic can go over Eth0)


Eth0  (main network adapter)
IP: 192.168.1.100
255.255.255.0
Gateway: 192.168.1.1

Eth1
IP: 192.168.1.101
255.255.255.0
Gateway: 192.168.1.1

Destination network : 192.168.60.60
Gateway : 192.168.1.1  Knows the path to the 192.168.60.0 network

I have no issue connecting/communicating with the destination network, what I need is to push any traffic on that server destined for the .60 network to use the eth1 adapter. All other traffic to use the eth0 network adapater

Is this possible?   (reason: we are using a serial to IP converter and it's causes the network to drop on the server, if I could designate the second network interface just for that traffic it wouldnt cause an issue with the network)

would something like this work

route add 192.168.60.60 mask 255.255.255.0 192.168.1.1 metric 10 Interface eth1

(not sure of the proper command, if someone knows please share)
