Choosing interface for netserver

I think this must have answered several time already but I haven't found
an answer in a search through neither the manual nor the list archives.

How do I specify which network interface I want netserver to listen on?

I have several machines with several network interfaces, and, while trying
to test an ATM, I am measuring 10baseT...

The client reports that no netserver is listening on the right port (12865)
at the IP address of the ATM interface, even though there ceryainly is
a netserver running, and tests to the 10baseT IP address do work correctly
(but slowly.)
