Subject [users@httpd] Aliased interface -- bind failed, address in use
Date Wed, 03 Aug 2005 19:41:05 GMT
I have a Linux 2.4.27 machine with the following interface configuration:

eth0   [xx.xx.xx.162] UP BROADCAST RUNNING etc.
eth0:1 [xx.xx.xx.165] UP BROADCAST RUNNING etc.

I can ping the machine on both interfaces.

I have OpenVPN running on tcp/xx.xx.xx.165:443 and nothing running on 
tcp/xx.xx.xx.162:443, as demonstrated:

# netstat -pan -Ainet | grep 443
tcp 0 0 xx.xx.xx.165:443 yy.yy.yy.yy:57928 ESTABLISHED 6517/openvpn

My Apache 1.3.33 configuration contains "Listen xx.xx.xx.162:443".  All 
"BindAddress" and "Port" statements are commented out.

Upon attempted startup, I receive the following log message:

[crit] (98)Address already in use: make_sock: could not bind to address 
xx.xx.xx.162 port 443
