This is not a problem the old os-9 open transport code currently does  
as an example.

             OTInitInetAddress(&epi->localAddress, 0, kOTAnyInetAddress);

which is part of the DoBind() procedure which binds the connection  
(like like a socket) to the remote and local sides.

If you pass in the port, and the interface address we'll use that  
instead of the 0, and kOTAnyInetAddress {meaning any interface address}
