I beleive that this is a bind address. Unless you have more than one
network interface (apart from loopback), you won't need these options

These options (if I understand corectly) are for if you have 2 networks

If you have only 1 'net connection and a private network (for example, a
PPP connection and a local network, the routing table should figure it
