Yes, nginx does listen on port 80 by default.

Basically, we are trying to get nginx to listen on an IP address for which the machine does not currently have (non-local).

Say we have a server with IP address 10.1.1.1, we want Nginx bound to IP 192.168.1.1 without complaining.

The idea being that in a failover situation, the IP 192.168.1.1 may end up being assigned to the server by an external process like Heartbeat.

Even the most basic config (below) is not letting nginx start up on the non-local IP.

user nginx;
worker_processes 4;
pid /var/run/nginx.pid;

error_log /var/log/nginx/error.log;

events {
worker_connections 1000;
}


http {
server {
listen 192.168.1.1:80 default;
}
}
