New Revision: 29930

Log:
Call nsp_setdevice after nsp_new in our Nsock pools.

The exceptions are the calls in ncat/ncat_connect.c and
nping/EchoServer.cc. Ncat doesn't have an option for the interface, and
I think Nping's -e option is only meant to apply to probes, not to the
echo server listener.

That is correct. The echo server uses -e to let users capture packets on
a specific network interface. For the TCP listener, the echo server will
listen on port 9929 on any IP address assigned to the box, unless a
specific address is passed with -S. In that case, the bind() operation
will be done to that address instead of INADDR_ANY.

Regards,

Luis MartinGarcia.
