Ping multiple devices via multiple NICs
I have an old pentium 3 computer that has ~7 NICs installed. These NICs are attached to modems and other networking equipment.
According to the linux ping page on computerhope.com, it seems that one could send a ping from a certain specified NIC. How would one go about this?

So I run iwconfig which says I have eth0 and eth1, as well as 2 other things.
How would I ping google.com or 126.96.36.199 from one of the network cards?
I tried the following
ping -I eth0 google.com
ping -I eth0 188.8.131.52

Actually, it looks like it was some sort of wiring mishap.
Now that I can ping from a specified NIC, is there anyway to have multiple pings running? ex: one terminal window pings via eth0, and another pings via eth1, or perhaps both via one terminal??

The primary nic (eth0) is able to get a ping back from 184.108.40.206, however eth1 returns a "host destination unreachable." are there any settings i would have to modify in order to be able to ping from several nic's (on the same machine) simultaneously?
it looks as if only one nic is able to ping out at any given time.
