I am using openafs as the file store for my static web pages.

I am using ip address based acl's to control read access to afs space.

If I have an ip based virtual host and web clients connecting to one
of these requests a page, will the openafs client present 'that' ip
address to afs when getting the page? In other words, if my virtual
hosts are

and a web client connects to the virtual host 10.8, will openafs
attempt to connect to the afs server as 10.8 -- or will it use the
primary address of the server -- ie 10.5?

If the openafs client on the webserver will expect to connect to the
afs fileserver with the particular virtual host ip, then can I force
openafs to only bind to a single ip address? If so, how do I do that.
