[vdr] [Patch] Allow to limit SVDRP port to given IP

Sorry to make things complicated, but would it not satisfy everybody
needs if you could bind to an ip address, which could be any one you
specify? For example, I would prefer mine to be bind to my eth0's ip
for internal lan clients to connect, but not accessible via ppp0 for

So I guess what I'm asking is, if you could start vdr with a listen
parameter switch and could specify for each listen switch a source ip
address or even a interface name?

> Hello,
> I've attached a second patch. This patch changes VDR's svdrp port handling in the following way: If only the localhost item is found in svdrphosts.conf, then the port is attached to "INADDR_LOOPBACK", which makes it impossible to reach the port from outside. As soon as even one additional item is added, the port is opened to "INADDR_ANY", again, so the port is accessible from network. This way, the default configuration of VDR is "rock solid" and there should be no need to disable svdrp at all. We also have no additional configuration mechanisms. The user only has to work with svdrphosts.conf, as he did with previous VDR versions.
