Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

The example from the documentation is:

vlc --ttl 12 -vvv --color -I telnet --telnet-password videolan --rtsp-host  

This, however, binds to all interfaces. I would prefer not to mess with ipchains/iptables, but force it to only bind on loopback. This would make it easier to manage from an automation of deployment perspective.
