Make sure that one of your network interfaces - the one that you want
FreeSWITCH to use - is assigned that address first, otherwise there will be
nothing for FreeSWITCH to bind to when it starts.

I don't know much about Windows, so if you're running FreeSWITCH on Windows,
I'm sure there will be others on the list who are in a position to help.

If you're using Linux, just make sure that the address you want is associated
with an interface, e.g., using ifconfig, then start FreeSWITCH with the
pre-processor variable $${local_ip_v4} set appropriately.
