Description:

When creating connections to servers, how can I use a particular interface to make the outgoing connection?
I currently create connections with the following code:
IO::Socket::INET->new( PeerAddr => $Remote, PeerPort => $Port, Proto = +> 'tcp' );
All pointers in the right direction appreciated.

You can use IO::Socket::INET's LocalAddr property to force the packets out a specific interface.

use IO::Scoket; $socket= new IO::Socket( LocalAddr=>$host, LocalPort=>$port, ..... #other arguments ) or die "socket not created\n";
the $host is the IP of the interface you want and the $port is the port number you want the service to run....

    [perldigious]: That stuff can hit fast... like what we just got where I'm at. Saw a few people who had slid OUT of the roundabout I have to drive through to get to work, not used to the ice yet, take awhile to get the hang of it again and make vehicle adjustments.
    [stevieb]: man, when the roads are glare ice, I don't even bother going to work or out... unless I absolutely have to, or was already out in the first place
    [choroba]: Tire chains are mandatory here in mountains, and the only unprepared each year are gritters
    [stevieb]: I have a 3 day winter survival kit in my vehicle in the event I get snowed in in the mountains (which has happened before due to avalanches closing the roads (and once in the summer due to a massive forest fire that trapped us
    [perldigious]: a handful of people in my work area did not make it, but I live pretty close and it's flat the whole way, so I didn't have any trouble. The roundabout is the worst thing I have to negotiate.
    [thezip]: G'day all!
    [perldigious]: Well, that and dodging the people who forget how ice works right away. :-)
    [stevieb]: hey, thezip
    [perldigious]: I don't miss having to drive up and down in elevation on roads that are iced over, I white knuckled gripping the steering wheel every time I had to where I used to live.
    [perldigious]: So I don't envy you mountain guys if you have to drive in the winter, even with tire chains.
