NAME

chbind - The chbind utility is used to lock a process and its children into using a specific IP number/Interface.

SYNTAX

chbind [ --silent] [--ip ip_number/interface] <command arguments>

DESCRIPTION

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.

OPTIONS

--ip ip_number/interface
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.
--silent
Do not complain.
 

FILES

/usr/sbin/chbind
 
 

EXAMPLES

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.
