mumble is binded to an ip address not an hostname.

if all of your hostname resolv to the same ip address , then mumble will respond to all of them.

if you want that mumble respond to only one hostname, you must bind it to an ip address that reverse to only one address.

...

Are you sure about that? Because the comment regarding "host=" in the mumble-server.ini says:

# Specific IP or hostname to bind to.
# If this is left blank (default), murmur will bind to all available addresses.

What if I had more than only one mumble-server running on my system?

It will resolve the hostname to an IP address, then bind to that IP.


It is not possible to bind to only a single hostname, if all those hostnames point to a single IP address.


If you want to run multiple Mumble servers on the same machine, you either need to run them on separate ports, or on separate IP addresses.

Full disclosure: I used to run a commercial Mumble host, and my opinions do not reflect the opinions of the Mumble project.

I guess the comment is mistakable/unclear.


Domains will *always* resolve to an IP, before a connection is established - not just for Mumble, but *any* IP based communication (pretty much all PC programs).

Programs on the PC bind to IP + port, never to a domain.
