using a dedicated ethernet port?

  erbus 13:45 09 Apr 08

hello, can anyone help?
i have a small network based around a gigabit switch. this small net takes data (via an ethernet port) from a data logging piece of hardware.
the only way to get the hardware to pass on its data is to have its own ethernet port as it requires a dedicated ip address. it will not work with a net with other ip addresses.
the question is this: a number of the pcs (all running xp) have 2 ethernet ports (bridging doesnt work) - is there any way to tell a piece of software to use a particular port? yet still use the other one for the lan?

many thanks

You may be able to allow the software through on a certain port from the Firewall.
