bind puppet agent to specific address

asked 2017-03-06 09:14:57 -0600


i have a firewall with some ipsec openswan tunnels. the puppet master is on a tunneled network. it is reachable over a specific interface, which isn't the default one. when i use fping with source ip i can contact the puppet master.

so is there a a way to the the puppet agent should use a specific interface of like to reach the puppet master? bindaddress does not work. or how is this supposed to work? the agent is not listening on any port, or is he?

in ipsec there is no device for the tunnel, so i can't do a route or so.

The Puppet Agent does not listen on any particular interface. In fact it doesn't listen at all. The agent initiates the connection to the Puppet master, so it'll use whatever route your OS provides to the Master's IP address.

This is an OS level network route, not anything in Puppet that you can change.
