+Summary: Certain remoting server functionality fails on PCs with dual network cards
+Description of Problem:
+Remoting methods fails when server has more than 1 network card.
+- The remoting server is configured to bind to eth1.
+- The server has a method that returns an object A.
+- Client receives the reference to object A correctly.
+- When executing A.foo() the request times out.
+After playing around with a packet sniffer I found that when the server
+sends the reference to object A it includes an the IP configured on eth0 (I
+assume this is because the object is created locally at first but then it's
+sent to the client), so when I execute the A.foo() the client actually
+tries to connect to the ip on eth0 but it times out because it should try
+to connect to eth1.
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+I will attach an client and server example.
+Actual Results:
+Object reference sent to the remoting client has the wrong ip (eth0 instead
+of eth1) causing the client to timeout when executing methods
+Expected Results:
+Should use the ip I bind to in the remoting configuration file.
+How often does this happen? 
+Every time.
