I have win xp and two Ethernet adapters.

One is wireless and one is wired. The wired network has a number of ports blocked but the wireless adapter has no ports blocked.

Is there any way I can configure on an application level which applications should use which adapter? I have been looking for information but could not even find the right words to search for.

how are you blocking the ports on the wired card?

The wired card has the ports blocked via a remote hardware firewall.

The wired card is on the office network.
The wireless connection is open for public access.

We need to get this straight:

What do you want to configure? Which interface outgoing requests from application xyz use? Then I don't thing it's possible on a per-app basis, but you can adjust some parts with routes, or simply place a general route on the wired card, meaning no requests go out over the w wireless card (incoming requests would still be answered by the card)
Or do you want to configure on which interface server software on your amchine listens at? Then yes, that's a per application setting, but it's also specifc for each application and we need to know which apps we're talking about. (No luck with linux though, it's a weak end host).

So long,

I have an application on my machine that wants to connect to a remote host on port 5555.

The wired network has port 5555 blocked.
The wireless card doe not have port 5555 blocked.

When the application tries to make a remote connection using port 5555 a 'Can Not Connect' exception is thrown.

I believe this is because outgoing requests are defaulted through the wired connection.

If I disable the wired connection and then attempt to use the application to connect to the remote host the connection is successful.

If I then turn the LAN connection back on the connection to the remote host is lost.

What I am assuming is that all outgoing requests are always routed through the wired connection, and even upon a failure the wireless connection is not used.

What I would like to be able to configure is:

code:
if wireless and wired are both active
  requests for port 5555 uses wireless
  others use wired

Provided the remote host has a fixed ip, a route is the way to go. (route help, route add, on the command lilne).

If the server you're contacting and your wireless connection have fixed IP addresses (and, I think, even if your wireless doesn't) then you can use the windows command-line 'route' command to add a rule saying all traffic for <server IP> goes out <wireless interface>

edit: and this is what I get for not refreshing the page before I post

Awesome, after playing around with the routes for about an hour I was able to figure out how to make it do what I needed to do.

This makes working on my computer much easier, thank you all for the help.
