Add ability to "bind specific" most TCP/IP servers and clients
When I serve up multiple TCP/IP interfaces (IBM i itself and the numerous Domino, WAS, etc it also supports) I would like the ability to "bind specific" many of the servers and clients such as telnet, ftp, CIMOM, etc. Numerous security issues: - Network guy only wants certain sites to be able to ftp barcode images to special printers. - CIMOM is binding to all interfaces and the certificate is not matching our Domino certificates thus getting us dinged on a security audit. ... And, to facilitate change, I'd also like the ability to specify a default, via a system wide environment variable or some such thing so that if I am going to enter 10.10.1.37 in a bazillion ".properties" files I could use the system environment instead.
