This is called Policy Based Routing in cisco terminology. Look at the configuration guide (any release) and if you don't understand something come back to ask.

Hope this helps, please rate post if it does!

I understand same answer can be provided at the same time, but now we're down to same wording also! :)

Well done Jon!

Thought you were taking some time off this summer ?. I reckon you lasted about a week - addictive this NetPro :-)

10.x.x.x and 10.212 are on sep subnets. But I only need some of the traffic on the server to go to 10.212 and the other traffic to stay local

I'm not sure.Please show the topology.

One thing : You can add the specific route in your host file on that server.

Yes, as mentioned before you use PBR for that.
