Most server-class hosts have multiple NICs for network redundancy. Each NIC is usually connected to a separate LAN which may be connected to different Internet providers. In certain use-cases, the IP originating a connection is an integral part of the communications security model. Another use-case employing multiple NICs is when the server functions as a "middleware" or "DMZ" host where one or more NICs handle Internet traffic and one or more NICs handle LAN traffic.

Is there a way to bind HTTPRequest to a specified NIC?

It doesn't look like the engine can bind to a specific NIC; the engine doesn't go down that deep into the OS. What you would probably have to do is write a module so as to choose which NIC to use.

Thank you for the response. I assumed that was the case. For now I'll build on the assumption of only one NIC and address multi-NIC support later.
