[Xymon] Getting Xymon client to send from a specific IP address

Hi everyone.

I have a few servers which have multiple IP addresses bound to the same
ethernet interface. I am not sure how the Xymon client chooses which IP to use
when sending.  In a post from Henrik in a different thread it seems like it
may be the underlying OS that chooses.

My problem is that on a recently built server, the Xymon client reports are
coming from the server's aliased IP rather than the primary IP on the
interface, so this host's reports show up in the ghost client report.

Any way to force it to use an IP.

Thanks for any help
