3.7.28. BindAddress Previous topic Parent topic Child topic Next topic

You can specify the local address for the client side of the LDAP connection with BindAddress, in the form hostname[:port].
Use this parameter to set LocalAddr parameter of the underlying IO::Socket used as the LDAP client. This is usually useful only on multi-homed hosts, where you need to control the source address of the LDAP connection, perhaps for firewall rules. There is no default and the system chooses the address.
This parameter is separate from the global BindAddress, see Section 3.5.9. BindAddress.
