Subject: Request for Bind to Local Address in WWW::Mechanize
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 487b
IO::Socket::Inet::new() [used eventually by Mechanize] can bind to a local IP addredd/interface. I need this facility in Mechanize too as I am writing test scripts that have to run on a machine with many a interface and all of them have the default route attached. In other words I need to tell Mechanize which interface to use (by binding to a local IP address) and not allow the kernel to select an interface. I am running Perl 5.8.0 on a RedHat 8.0 (ia32) machine. Thanks, Vladimir
This functionality would have to be at the LWP::UserAgent level.
