Subject [users@httpd] using another ip-address on multihomed servers
Date Fri, 07 Jul 2006 16:41:55 GMT

I have a strange problem: I'm providing a service to my users on a 
certain ip-address. This service in turn connects to another server. The 
server my service connects to is firewalled and only allows connections 
from a certain ip-adress of my multihomed server (it has several 

When this service connects to the server it uses the ip-address of the 
http-service defined in a virtual host entry. I usually can change the 
LocalAddr when I'm connecting to a server, but this doesn't work when it 
is done through apache. When I'm doing this locally (without the 
webserver) it works.

What is the reason for it? Might it be a problem that apache runs as nobody?
