Force Information Going Out to Use A Specific IP Address

Hi Everyone,

Hopefully one of you will be able to assist. Basically, my situation is that at work we have a server which hosts multiple websites using multiple IP address. One of the new sites we are moving to this server needs an LDAP connection outside of our network.

Originally, on our development site (which only has 1 IP address), the LDAP authentication worked. However, when we moved it to it’s new production server (the one I described before with multiple IPs), it created a conflict of IP addresses which result in problems authenticating since the outside LDAP server only accepts requests from the one. It seems the the LDAP request is most likely being sent from an unauthorized IP and thus it is not working.

Is there a way that we can force the ldap_bind request to use a specific IP address to send the request for authentication? Supposedly we can use an event handler to enable this but I’m not sure how to go about it since I don’t have a lot of experience with event handlers.

Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
