    i have two internet connections a 'dsl' and a 'vsat', and i want to
    use the first one for uploading data to one of my out servers, and the
    second one for downloading .
    does anyone knows how i can setup two network interfaces, one for
    downloading from the net and the other one for the uploads ?

    The way you describe this, it would be easy. Just set a route to the
    upload server through the DSL interface, and the default route through
    the satellite.
    This is less easy, but I think it's possible using iproute2. See the
    Advanced Routing HOWTO and iproute2 documentation.
