Subject [jira] Created: (NET-320) Allow to bind to a specific network adapter
Date Mon, 03 May 2010 18:29:58 GMT
Allow to bind to a specific network adapter

                 Key: NET-320
             Project: Commons Net
          Issue Type: Improvement
    Affects Versions: 2.0
            Reporter: Kevin Bulebush

It would be very nice to specify exactly which network interface you would like to bind the
TFTP server listening port to.  In some cases it's only necessary to open up loopback, in
other cases you may only want to bind to a management network.  I would like to see one of
two things happen to satisfy this requirement.
1) You could allow me to get a handle to the socket such that I can make modifications to
it on my own.


2) Add a constructor and/or method that allows me to pass a NetworkInterface instance to specify
which nic to bind the server to.
