48.3 Binding the Internet Agent to a Specific IP Address

By default, the Internet Agent 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 Internet Agent binds to all IP addresses available on the server.

To turn off the exclusive bind:

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

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

  3. Deselect Bind Exclusively to TCP/IP Address, then click OK to save your change.

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