Goal

A multihomed machine is a type of host that uses multiple interfaces and contains two or more network addresses that can be attached to the same LAN segment or a separate LAN segment. Multihoming is a process or a technique widely used to eliminate single point of failure on the network, and provides alternate data transmission paths in the event of a path failure.

Having a multihomed host, sometimes can present an issue with an application that uses or expects to communicate with a specific network interface or network address.

In this article we shall present a way to force OGG Monitor Server to use a specific network address to communicate to a Monitor Agent running on a multihomed machine.
