Force a website to use the second network card


I've got the following case:

Network Interface  1: IP 192.168.5.x (Main network card because of the faster internet connection)
Network Interface 2: IP 192.168.1.x

Network Interface 1 is a fiber connection.
Network Interface 2 is a VDSL connection.

I need to connect to a website through Network Interface 2 because it is not allowed to reach the website through Network Interface 1.

As example:
Ill go to the website example.com but it doesn't connect because it's using the network interface 1 of my PC.
If i disable network interface 1, and I browse to example.com it works just fine, because it's forced to use network interface 2.

Is there a way to force the website to use network interface 2 while network interface 1 is still up?

Kind Regards,

On A windows Server in IIS you have option to select the IP, this should help resolve your problem.
