One can influence the route used to reach a specific device/host. If NFS is the only thing for which the device is used, you're good to go. The system cannot be configured to use different routing based upon port.

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
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
the same thing until we reconfigured it). We can probably configure
external device to accept requests from this address, but it would be
good to know if there's a better control mechanism.
