I'm running a transmission daemon. I'd like only its torrent traffic to only go through eth0 while its RPC traffic, and all other network traffic, to only go through eth1.

I think I can configure transmission to split its traffic like this. How do I also cause other traffic to only use eth1 without blocking transmission's ability to use eth0 and without allowing fallback between the nic?

task network

Edit: I think I might be able to use iptable's owner module to pull this off since the transmission daemon is running under the dedicated user:group debian-transmission:debian-transmission. However, it only works on outgoing packets.


Configure bind-address-ipv4 to eth0's local ip and rpc-bind-address to eth1's local ip in settings.json.
