CURLOPT_DNS_LOCAL_IP4(3) Library Functions Manual CURLOPT_DNS_LOCAL_IP4(3)

CURLOPT_DNS_LOCAL_IP4 - IPv4 address to bind DNS resolves to

#include <curl/curl.h>
CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_DNS_LOCAL_IP4, char *address);

Set the local IPv4 address that the resolver should bind to. The argument should be of type char * and contain a single numerical IPv4 address as a string. Set this option to NULL to use the default setting (do not bind to a specific IP address).

The application does not have to keep the string around after setting this option.



int main(void)
  CURL *curl = curl_easy_init();
  if(curl) {
    CURLcode res;
    curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "");
    curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_DNS_LOCAL_IP4, "");
    res = curl_easy_perform(curl);

This option requires that libcurl was built with a resolver backend that supports this operation. The c-ares backend is the only such one.

Added in 7.33.0

Returns CURLE_OK if the option is supported, CURLE_UNKNOWN_OPTION if not, CURLE_NOT_BUILT_IN if support was disabled at compile-time, or CURLE_BAD_FUNCTION_ARGUMENT when given a bad address.
