I guess I'm confused. Can you say more about why you need this?

AFAIK, this looks more like packet filtering on a router. IP traffic is
broadcast, anyway. Even when we specify a route (option 2 of CFGTCP), the
packets may go anywhere until they find their way to their final resting
place <g>.

The interface that is used, eventually, is the one that gets you where you
want to go. You can control this to a degree by IP address(es), in the
routing table.
