I am having routing issues with network in Windows XP. I have a machine
with 2 physical network cards and am trying to use the machine to physically
isolate two different networks. The limitation is best shown when you
consider the machine connected to 2 hubs:

hub --------- machine -----------hub

with nothing else in the mix. The left side is configured as a TCP server
listening on 192.168.0.1:6000 and the left is configured bound to IP
192.168.0.2 connecting to TCP server 192.168.0.1:6000. When I startup the
software, I'd expect this to fail. There is no physical path for the client
to connect to the server. However, the connection is successful. The
system is acting like windows is routing this traffic internally instead of
over the wire.

Any thoughts on how to prevent this connection?
