I have installed a backup client on one of our redhat servers. When I try to connect on the port it uses, it does not allow it. When I run netstat -tulpn | less

tcp        0      0 169.254.95.119:3817         0.0.0.0:*                   LISTEN      32322/ytlinsdr

Is there a way to bind it to the actual ip address of the ethernet interface. It should look like  192.168.1.62:3817

Are you familiar with the type of ip address I noted above? I need to make sure the port 3817 is bound to 192.168.1.62 so that I can connect to it from my backup server.

The configuration file of the backup client software should allow you to specify the IP address.

Additionally, if it's listening on a 169.254 address, then that's the default in the config file or it doesn't see the 192.168.1.62 address.

I was able to add a line to the Backup App's config that binded the port to the appropriate ip address.
