What is Bind in graylog

I am able to get log messages in Graylog. before that i have launched one syslog UDP Input and in that i have mentioned GraylogServer IP in Bind address field. What does this mean? Can i have in bind address as well? Little bit Confusing. Please give a brief analisys. Thanks in advance

Hello @seshagiri,

bind means any system can send to this input.
if you define an address like only this host is accepted at this input.

best regards

Got it. Thank you very much For Quick response.

let me correct you just a little.

if you bind one input to it will listen on any network interface and all networks the Graylog server is corrected to. On the other hand, binding to a specific IP will let the input listen only on that IP and Port.
