I hava a Ubuntu Server (10.04 LST) running MediaTomb. The server is also a gateway to the network, so I want MediaTomb only to listen on one interface. In the MediaTomb config file etc/mediatomb/config.xml I already set <interface>eth2</interface>, but MediaTomb is still available on the other interfaces.

Edit /etc/default/mediatomb then restart server.

This doesn't answer the question. To remove the negative reputation points, edit your answer, improve it, and drop a note so that I can review my assessment of your answer. Alternatively, [delete] it altogether and the negative reputation points will be reversed automatically by the system. (I do this too for answers that give me negative reputation points) ;-) – Fabby Oct 2 '15 at 2:06
