Subject Adding support for SO_BINDTODEVICE
Date Thu, 12 Feb 2004 01:29:07 GMT

I have need of a web-server which can bind to a particular
device, both by binding to the local IP address and
also using the setsockopt(... SO_BINDTODEVICE) call.

I believe I can add this to Apache fairly quickly.

My initial thought is to add support for:

Listen [device]:[ip]:[port]

For instance:

Listen eth1:

Would there be any chance that such a patch would
be accepted into the main tree?
