[Opendnssec-user] How to specify outbound IP address for notify

What I want to do:

I am trying to configure the Outbound section of

to use a specific outbound IP address.

What I have done:

I can see where I configure the destination addresses (Peer and Remote),
but not the source address.

If I configure conf.xml/Signer/Listener/Interface/Address with an IP
address, I see the following message in the logs during the notification

ods-signerd[86769]: [notify] unable to bind address
2607:f2f8:af30:1::53: bind() failed Can't assign requested address

where that is the address I specified in

If I remove the address from the Signer config, then I see the log message:

ods-signerd[90456]: [notify] unable to bind address : bind failed
Invalid argument

So it looks as if Notify wants to have the address configured via

but it also looks as if Notify tried to bind to the address, and it is
already in use.

Hence my deadlock.

So my question is:

How do I specify the address that Notify binds to when it is sending a
notify message to my slave server?
