           Summary: BindAddress and -b not working
           Product: Portable OpenSSH
           Version: 3.4p1
          Platform: UltraSparc
        OS/Version: Solaris
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: ssh
        AssignedTo: openssh-unix-dev at mindrot.org
        ReportedBy: murple at murple.net

I'm trying to install the OpenSSH3.4p1 on an UltraSparc running SunOS 5.6. The
program compiled and runs fine with one problem... The system has two IP
addresses, one on a secure network and one facing the outside world. I need to
have the ssh client use one of these addresses for its outbound connections.
With the old SSH 1.2.x I was able to use the SourceAddress directive in
ssh_config to do this. Using OpenSSH3.4p1, neither the BindAddress directive in
ssh_config nor the -b commandline switch seem to function on Solaris.

A search of Bugzilla found that this was a known problem on Solaris with an
older version of OpenSSH about one year ago, but there was no mention of a fix
or workaround. It is still not working for me. This is something I need
functional for work pretty quickly. Please advise if there is a known fix.
