Can you tell us more about the problem you're trying to fix?  Maybe there's another way around it.

Thanks for the reply.

Been away a few days.

But trying to bind the local interface to a specific 'session'. ie. /s mysession2

So then that way I can bind in a NAT environment easier or even a routed environment. ie. pass thru.

Ah, ok.  No, most of the networking stuff is handled by DirectPlay, and unfortunately there's no way of binding to a specific IP address.  So FSHost will get whatever messages your machine's able to get via DirectPlay.  If you're able to redirect packets based on IP address with your router, that might be a possibility, but I'm not really sure.
