SO_BINDTODEVICE

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/14478167/bind-socket-to-network-interface

You can bind to a specific interface by setting SO_BINDTODEVICE socket option. Warning: You have to be root and have the CAP_NET_RAW capability in order to use this option.

struct ifreq ifr;
memset(&ifr, 0, sizeof(ifr));
snprintf(ifr.ifr_name, sizeof(ifr.ifr_name), "eth0");
if (setsockopt(s, SOL_SOCKET, SO_BINDTODEVICE, (void *)&ifr, sizeof(ifr)) < 0) {
    ... error handling ...
}

var http = require('http'),
    net = require('net'),
    util = require('util'),
    ffi = require('ffi');

var SOL_SOCKET = 1;
var SO_BINDTODEVICE = 25;
var current = ffi.Library(null, {

});

var remoteIp = "192.168.0.1";
var ourIp = "192.168.0.182";
var ourInterface = "eth1";

    http.Agent.call(this, options);
    this.createConnection = bindingCreateConnection;

util.inherits(bindingAgent, http.Agent);

function bindingCreateConnection(port, host, options) {
    var socket;
    socket = new net.Socket({handle: net._createServerHandle(ourIp)});
    var iface = ourInterface;
    var r = current.setsockopt(socket._handle.fd, SOL_SOCKET, SO_BINDTODEVICE, iface, 6);
    if (r === -1)
        throw new Error("getsockopt(SO_BINDTODEVICE) error");

    socket.connect(port, host);

    return socket;
}
