gw/local_addr for client ICM http access


I am looking for a parameter that is telling the ICM to use a specified IP address for outgoing IP traffic. In a way like gw/local_addr works for RFC connections for the gateway. But in this case it is used for the ICM working as a client http component. Any ideas ?

Kind regards, Hinrich

    Hello again,

    after opening a call there was a development done in the ICM and a new parameter showed up with kernel version >= 7.21: icm/local_addr does the job.

    Please see "Note 1762956 - Binding outbound connections to a network interface" for further information.

    Kind regards, Hinrich

    Hello Hinrich,

    Have you tried to configure the ICM HTTP port to bind to a specific address?

    You can do this with the option "HOST=..." from the "icm/server_port_X" parameter. But note this will affect incoming connections as well.

    • Hello Hinrich,

      I'm not sure whether it will work.

      The ICM will use the same service for outgoing connections. So, I suppose that if you bind it to a specific IP address, outgoing connections would also be made from that IP.

      And yes, you can have more than one service with the same protocol. I'm not sure how would the ICM behave in this case, but I would guess it would use the first service available with the protocol it needs for the outgoing connection.

      Best regards,
