Hi daniel (and jonathan),

Thanks for your replies. I did what you said and netstat -lpn got a little better. But there is still one entry which shouldnot be there:

m1:~# netstat -lpn | grep spread
tcp        0      0*               LISTEN     12168/spread
udp        0      0*                          12168/spread
udp        0      0*                          12168/spread
udp        0      0 *                          12168/spread
unix  2      [ ACC ]     STREAM     HÖRT          798406539 12168/spread        /tmp/4803

Here is my spread config:

Spread_Segment {

        m1 {


Other than that i didnot change the default spread config. I am using spread  Version 3.17.02 Built 5/March/2004 (debian package). I start spread with:

m1:~# spread -n m1

I use supervise for process monitoring just for info.

Any other ideas?

Sorry for replying.  Obviously, I didn't know what I was talking about.
As Jonathan indicated, the following works to force binding only to
a specific interface (in this case, localhost):

Spread_Segment {
  localhost {
