We've got multiple IP addresses configured on our IBM i. With SMTP, it's relatively easy to configure which address to bind to. iSeries Navigator lets you select which IP addresses to bind to right in the SMTP server configuration page. Is there something similar to force an NFS mount to a specific interface? This is when we're trying to use the MOUNT command to access an external device's file system as an IBM i folder, so I don't think the NFS server configuration is going to help (and there's nothing there about binding anyway).

MOUNT seems to want to use the numerically lowest IP interface (SMTP did the same thing until we reconfigured it). We can probably configure the external device to accept requests from this address, but it would be good to know if there's a better control mechanism.
