Sorry, but I have no idea how that is done. Anybody around who
knows more about socket programming?

I don't think it makes sense : a host connect to another host through routing.
It means it use the routing tables on the first host to determine the route.
If you can reach the destination by multiple routes, it's the routing
protocol to decide by which interface you will emit. If you want to
use a sepecific interface, you have to change those routing tables.
