chbind - 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
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.
- --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.
- 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
