We have a htdig installation for our college that uses different IP
addresses to perform normal and external (to the college network)
searches. To achieve this we have always used a separate squid proxy to
make connections to college webservers from a special non-college IP
It would be better, IMHO, for htdig to bind to different source ethernet
addresses (present on the machine as aliases to the primary address) as
a configuration option. To that end I've produced (an untested and
scrappy) patch (attached) against the current beta.
The patch should allow you to use the following directive in your
# interface address to use (for hosts with more than one IP address).
I've not tested the patch much yet and there may be several scrappy bits
of programming (I am not a good c++ programmer) verify that it works...
you can choose any interface on chi and put its IP addr in the interface
directive. Running rundig should cause that IP address to be listed in
log files of the webservers that you search against.
