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.
