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.
