ForceBindIP %NetworkCardsIP% %PathToProgram%
ForceBindIP 127.0.0.1 “C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe”
- The network card you want to bind the application to has an IP of 127.0.0.1
- The program you want to bind to that network card is Firefox.
Just a few things to remember:
- You have to give the full path to your program.

That’s all there is to it.
