Binding a socket works the same way on both client-side and server-side.
It associates the local end of the socket to a specific port and/or specific
network adapter/interface. For a client, if the local machine has multiple
networks installed, the BoundIP allows you to be explicit about which network
adapter you want the outbound connection to go out from.
