I don't *think* you can; indeed, I don't think the command line ping program
offers this either.

If you have several network interfaces, then the networking stack will try
and use the best option. So, if the destination is on the same subnet as one
of the NIC's then it will use that. If only one NIC has a default gateway
and the others don't, it will use that for anything non-local. After that, I
guess it comes down to metrics and least number of hops and so on.

Awating to be proven wrong :)
