    Listening on Multiple IPs

    Michael Rice Newbie

      I would like to configure a single instance of the server to listen on 2 specific network interfaces, but not all network interfaces. Is there a way to do this? I've seen this question popup a few years ago, and the answer has been "no you can't do that", but I was wondering if this has changed or if there is any plan to support this.

       

      Thanks.

          This was always possible, not sure why/how said it was not possible.

           

          this is full option set for configuring interface we have in our testsuite for years now.

           

          <interface name="internal">

             <multicast/>

             <nic name="eth0"/>

             <nic-match pattern="eth[0-9]+"/>

             <point-to-point/>

             <site-local-address/>

             <up/>

             <any>

             <subnet-match value="10.0.0.0/8"/>

             <subnet-match value="192.168.0.0/16"/>

             </any>

             <not>

             <loopback/>

             </not>

          </interface>

           

          so I would think that you would need something like

          <interface name="public">

             <nic name="eth0"/>

             <nic name="eth1"/>

          </interface>

           

          or something like that depending on your configuration.

           

          But thinking of it now, I am not sure how would this work later when services are bound to this interfaces.

            I have tried numerous variations of the <interface> tag, including those you've listed, but none are successful. The server starts, but the services are not listening on multiple interfaces. Specifying <any-ipv4-address/> works of course, but that's not ideal, as I have several interfaces and do not want to expose the services on all of them.

              Without <any-ipv4-address/>,<any-ipv6-address/> and <any>, there is a way to set multiple ip which are accessable to the management interface ?

               

              From help from interface menu, those options are looking for a IP for the interface.

               

              For example, NIC

              ~~~

              Attribute indicating that part of the selection criteria for choosing an IP address for this interface should be whether its network interface has a name that matches the given regular expression.

              ~~~

                You can start instance with 0.0.0.0 and then you can access with all IPs available on System.
