Dear Supports,

My Backup Exec Symantec 2010 server has two interfaces with different IP address (backup and service

And File-server too has two interfaces (backup, and service
Service port is the port used for accessing data by end users.
Backup port is a port that is used for backup.

From Backup server if I ping File-Server I get service IP address which is, because on the DNS server that is what is been set to be reached by end users.  

I want to backup through Backup Interface  is there any feature that Symantec provide to different interfaces for backing up, or this has to be done through windows?

    Symantec Backup Xecdoes have this.

    For per job basis, you can also do that. See administrator's guide page 402 to 408. Pay attention to Interface and Network Interface.

    Under Network Interface select the Dedicated Network is not available as you can see from the image below.  it is only one option and that is use any available interfaces
