Coda server trouble with multiple NIC's

	I am a small web developer intrigued by CODA's functionality.  I currently
host sites I design and like Brett Lymn (Nice article in Sys Admin, BTW), I
plan to try CODA to replicate to multiple web servers for fail over

	I was able to set CODA up with almost no problem, however, I received an
error that has me puzzled.  My set-up is as follows:

				CODA SERVER				------ -		client
					|	   |			-------															|	   | 				|															\	   | 				/
\	--------------------   /
WITCH																		---------------------

Venus looks to for the server.

I receive the following errors when running    -venus -init &-

After looking up "can't get root volume name!" in the discussion group
archives, I came across a similar messages regarding binding to the correct

regarding Problems connecting to svm: RTP2_NOTCLIENT

 I took down (eth1) and all works fine.  It seems to be a problem
with the server replying back on the wrong (multiple) interface.  The above
article finishes up by saying "Actually, the server is listening on all
interfaces. And indeed, after pointing the client to the internal interface
instead of the external, the mounting succeeded.

Thank you for your support"

I believe I have a similar problem, (although the interfaces are internal)
but unsure how to correct it.

Any thoughts...thanks
