The chbind utility is used to lock a process and its children into using a specific ip number/interface.
chbind [--silent] [--ip ip_number/interface] <command arguments>
The chbind utility executes a command, and locks the resulting process and its children into using a specific IP number/Interface, no matter what it is told in it's configuration. This applies to services and client connection as well.
Binds the process to the given IP number or Interface. If an interface is supplied (for example eth0), both the IP number and broadcast address are extracted.
--bcast broadcast address
Binds the process to the given broadcast IP number.
Do not complain.
If I wanted to ensure my httpd listened only on my eth0 interface, I could do: chbind --ip eth0 /etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd start
Please contribute some, if you feel it's important.
