55.3 Binding the GWIA to a Specific IP Address

By default, the GWIA binds to a specified IP address when the server where it runs uses multiple IP addresses. The specified IP address is associated with all ports used by the agent. Without an exclusive bind, the GWIA binds to all IP addresses available on the server.

To turn off the exclusive bind:

  1. In ConsoleOne, browse to and right-click the GWIA object, then click Properties.

  2. Click GroupWise > Network Address to display the Network Address page.

    Internet Agent Network Address property page
  3. Deselect Bind Exclusively to TCP/IP Address, then click OK to save your change.

    You can use the /ip startup switch in the GWIA startup file to establish an exclusive bind to the specified IP address. If you have used this switch in the GWIA startup file, remove it to turn off the exclusive bind.
