I am desperately needing a solution to binding certain applications to specific network interfaces. ForceBindIP seems to be my only solution. Although the website claims it works up to XP, Google says that many users running 7 have had it work successfully. I have UAC disabled, yet still: enter image description here

Does anyone know why this is happening? If not, does anyone know a viable alternative to ForceBindIP? I'm a gamer and I'm addictively trying to torrent on a secondary connection while playing games online.

uTorrent has a settings option to bind it to a specific IP. You don't need a tool for that :) – Darth Android Jun 26 '12 at 15:36

The first two errors are because ForceBindIP is not on your path. If you copy it into System32 or into another folder on your path, you wont' have that issue.

The third error is because the "Program Files (X86)" folder has spaces in the name. You need to enclose the path of the executable in double-quotes because it contains spaces - "C:\Program Files (x86)\uTorrent\uTorrent.exe"

Also, if you go into the advanced settings dialog of uTorrent, you can simply specify what IP or interface it should bind to.

Thanks guys. All I see in uTorrent is how net.bind_ip. If I put a network interface GUID there, will that also work? Is there anything else I need to change? – Craig Jun 26 '12 at 18:44
@Craig I don't know if that works with a GUID. It does work with an IP though. – Darth Android Jun 26 '12 at 21:03
Does anyone know if ForceBindIP makes a permanent bind, or only until you close that application? – Craig Jun 28 '12 at 2:35
@Craig it's only until you close that application. – Darth Android Jun 28 '12 at 14:07

You should copy 2 files to the directory:

x86bit: C:\Windows\System32\ and for x64bit: C:\Windows\SysWOW64\

What files? As it stands, this doesn't help. – Chenmunka Aug 12 '14 at 7:30

Make a shortcut, go to properties, then add the forcebindip command in the target box like:

C:\Windows\System32\ForceBindIP.exe -i "C:\Users\Media Pc\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe"

This is the only way I have found it to work.

oh he meant the two forcebind files you downloaded – Netjunnkie Jul 3 '15 at 17:44
You might want to mention in your answer where the ForceBindIP.exe file needs to be located. – Jason Aller Jul 3 '15 at 18:12
