@ enet cards, how to force Firefox to use one, but still listen on the other

I have 2 enet interfaces in my fedora 20 machine. One is connected to a fixed IP, which I can use to log into the computer (SSH) , and also listen wit httpd for my home web page. However it is pretty slow. I also have the other card on the internal network, 198... etc., which can also access the internet, and which access is much faster.

How can I force firefox to use the faster interface, without turning off the 1st card from listen to and responding to incoming internet pings, etc.

I tried setting DEFROUTE =no in the first card's network-script file, which left the other as default, and fixed the firefox problem, but then the first card was deaf on the internet.


Old F7 & F11 machines gone.
1st new machine (1155) w SSD 256 main drive (fast !!)
Asus Intel Q77 MB - mATX, Intel Core i5-3570K.
2nd Machine, reused Old F11 guts, new SSD 128. Both running Fed20, one primarily KDE the other Gnome

You can do that by launching firefox with a specific group using 'sg'. Then you can make an iptables rule that will route firefox based on that special group ID, first by marking the packets, then filtering/routing on the mark.

You should be able to get some ideas here:

Shouldn't you be able to config apache to use the secondary eth?
