DUAL SERVER NICs

Specs: Windows XP
Have 3 WIN-XP machines with dual NICs. Primary is used as a server the other two as backups. Backup software continuously updates the backups. NICs are gigabit,#1's connect to LAN via switch. #2's connect each server via another switch. How can I restrict backup traffic to the #2 NICs?

That's the problem with Windows. It's really hard to direct traffic with multiple NICs, not to mention, that they just aren't needed in a small home network.

You can't. There is no way to tell an app at layer7 of the OSI model to use xyz at layer3.
