Assigning services to interfaces

This may be a stupid question, but...

On a system with more than one network interface, is there a way to specify which interface a particular service runs on?

I've got NFS turned on and it is advertising RPC services on both interfaces. Can this be configured to run on only one interface instead of glomming on to all available interfaces?

I don't know any possibility directly in the NFS subsystem, but you can use IPTables to create this restriction.

Some services support a 'bind', 'interface' or 'listen' setting, and others do not. Unfortunately, rpc.nfsd or portmap do not allow these types of settings, so you'll have to do it with iptables as moinefou suggests.

For example, apache, openldap, mysql, sendmail, xinetd-based stuff, and bind all support this type of configuration.
