When you don't specify an address before the port number, omniORB will listen on all network interfaces (see this documentation: section 6.6) but will publish the first non-loopback network interface it can find in the IOR.

Hi folks,
several use case exists to install a server on several subnetworks.

I think the good way to do this would be to put an environment variable bind-address in /etc/tangorc, exactly the same way it is done in other services, e.g. MariaDB (
bind-address should allow several addresses.

It seems to me backward compatibility could be easily assured by keeping current behaviour by default (publishing on first IP address found).
Thus, if bind-address is defined in /etc/tangorc (or elsewhere) TANGO service will publish on this or these addresses.

Does this sound OK and feasible to you?
