I use my WIFI to access all my daily work via my own router. I’m adding a 2nd for work "separate network" to use for my VMware Horizon client. But I want it to connect to the wired nic "2nd one" because it is much faster so is there is a way to do this without the need to keep disable the WIFI? I see there's a way to change the order of prefered interfaces but does anyone know if there is a third party app that can allow/force certain application(s) to use the wired nic and NOT the wifi?

Thank You!

There was one freeware called ForceBindIP, lets you run specific app through a specific network interface without considering their priority.

It's for OSX and I can't find anything like ForceBindIP

Ah, I missed that it is OS X, sorry.

Theoretically you can alter the routing table to use specific interface when connecting to specific hosts. Check this article out:

I have to configure a proxy, route/tcp tables lol.
I just thought there was an application where it can manage what I need in an easy way.

I don't like this way but I think it's easier:
I have a windows10 on VMware "fusion" I can edit it's vm nic from shared to my work 2nd nic and use my vdi client from the vm in the unity view

Thanks
