How can a probe (Java Agent) be bound to a specific network interface (NIC)

If the Diagnostics Java Agent (probe) is installed on a server that has multiple network interfaces (NIC) and there is a requirement to ensure that all network communications between the probe and its Mediator server occurs via a specific NIC

To bind the Java Agent (probe) to a specific network interface, edit the probe configuration file:


and specify the host address the probe is to bind to using:

# Host address to bind to. Uncomment this and specify an IP address if

# the SUT has multiple interfaces, and only one should be responding to

# HTTP requests. =

Restart the probe to apply the new configuration.
