The TCP/IP stack usually resides in the kernel. What you want is the
ability to bind a socket to a specific address, and alas Squeak doesn't
support that. 

(it'd be simple to add, but as it is a primitive change it would need to
be coordinated across platforms).

Alternative solutions:
- bind on a high port and let your OS kernel direct packets destined for
  the address/port you want to publish to that high port;
- put the Swiki behind Apache.
