Don't think so (although I have to understand the exact implication of

That should be in o.a.h.ipc.Server$Listener that says:

      address = new InetSocketAddress(port);
      // Create a new server socket and set to non blocking mode
      acceptChannel = ServerSocketChannel.open();

      // Bind the server socket to the local host and port
      acceptChannel.socket().bind(address, backlogLength);

The socket is bound to the wildcard address and therefore will accept
connections from any interface.

I don't know Hadoop's internals well, but it seems to me that an
additional configuration could do the trick, e.g.

    String itfAddr = conf.getString("ipc.server.listen.address")
    address = (itfAddr == null) ? new InetSocketAddress(port) : new
InetSocketAddress(itfAddr, port);

How does that sound?
