For you router guys out there I need some advice.

I have a machine with 3 interfaces.

eth0 -> -> -> internet

eth1 -> ->
                   -> -> VPN to

eth2 -> -> internal net 

default route is -> eth0

if I have a packet from eth2 to the special subnet I want to it to go via a gateway on eth1 (say a VPN) but 

if I have a packet from eth1 to I want it to go via the default route (eth0).

I use the command:
ip route via from

but what I get is the same as if I ran:

ip route via

Anyone have an idea how to do that?
