Spend ours debugging why webserver wouldn't bind to a local, fix IPv4 address. Solution was set kernel param net.ipv4.ip_nonlocal_bind = 1.

Usually needed only for elastic IPs... Seems like Linux does not play well with the virtualized interfaces of my provider.

Can anybody explain why this behavior does not affect the address? Spec?
