Hi. Kenneth.

No mean to offend.

I am glad you team provided so great erlang/OTP distribution. Just checked
some  old erlang-questions discussions. Someone was talking about the
difference between ibrowse and http client in distribution. He said sometime
the default http client won't work with some servers but ibrowse can work.

And based on my observation, ibrowse seems integrated a builtin loadbancer.
Actually I didn't care this much. Use default http client or ibrowse is same
to me. Just want to have a different try. BTW, if default http client is
good enough, why these guys were trying to creating ibrowse?

If default http client can let me bind IP when I initial the http request,
that will be perfect.

Thanks.

Regards.

Scott Zhang ( I should change my name. :) )
