[Spread-users] set ips to listen on

Look at the sample.spread.conf file in the docs directory of the source distribution. 
Towards the end it has several sample configurations that use a more advanced syntax to 
specify exactly what interfaces you want to use for client connections verses 
daemon-to-daemon traffic. If you specify the interfaces you want using this syntax, Spread 
will NOT bind to, but will only bind to the interfaces you specify. 

Note, you usually want to include localhost as well as your private IP's in the list for 
client connections and daemon traffic so you can run local testing programs like spmonitor 
or spuser, but you don't have to.

Hope that solves your problem.
