[Backgroundrb-devel] Using the ip flag

Wait - the default config used in all the examples has the backgroundrb workers listening to connections from all public interfaces?  That seems like a really risky thing.  Perhaps the examples should all get updated to 'localhost'.

If you use the same backgroundrb.yml used for your Mongrel machines on
the BackgrounDRb machine (which you should), then it should listen on
the machine's IP which you have configured in that file. If you want
it to listen to all interfaces then use 0.0.0.0 like hemant said in
his previous post.
