[Spread-users] Multihomed configuration problem.

I have about 30 nodes defined with the following configuration

Each server is configured with 2 interfaces.

serverX is defined in /etc/hosts and is the current hostname/nodename
of serverX.
serverX-eth1 is also defined in /etc/hosts and this is the interface I
want to use for spread daemon communication.

My configuration looks like the following. basically client
communication should only try to use local host but daemon
communication should use the dedicated interface on eth1.

Spread_Segment {
  server1-eth1 { D C }
  server2-eth1 { D C }

With this configuration is started I get the following error:

Conf_load_conf_file: using file: /tmp/spread.conf
Successfully configured Segment 0 [] with 16 procs:
Finished configuration file.
Hash value for this configuration is: 332396006
Conf_load_conf_file: My proc id ( is not in configuration
(this is the main address on eth0)
Exit caused by Alarm(EXIT)

Anyone know how I can work around this issue? I don't want spread to
know about the interface running on eth0.
I just want to make sure all daemon communication is sent/recv on eth1 only.
