Re: binding a socket to a specific interface

Ah, thanks.
Unfortunately, this doesn't seem to be available in 6, which my production 
servers are still on.

The manpage (from 7) says
	The IP_PKTINFO option can be used to turn on receiving of information
	about the source address of the packet, and the interface index.
which doesn't sound (to me) like you can set the outgoing interface.

What does dhcpcd do? If it doesen't go the bpf route, can you point me at 
the relevant code?
