If you bind the socket on an interface (eth0 towards your local net) for 
example, you cannot access it on the router, right ? So it will give you more 
security (kernel checks the interface, not some OLSR userspace code), but 
limit your configuration choices (the ACL in the development version of OLSRd 
allows multiple IPs/networks as white- and blacklists).
