Is there any reason to use it at all? Why not just bind to all addresses?
Unless you _really_ want to take care about which IP interfaces ICP happens

*_incoming/*_outgoing addresses. Leave them commented out.

Did you read the documentation AND the FAQ?
If not, I'll probably still answer your question, but my patience will
be limited, and you take the risk of sarcasm and ridicule.
