Source interface for HTTP requests on Cisco devices

To select the source interface used for HTTP requests sent by a Cisco device, use the following command:

ip http client source-interface interface_name

This is useful when you have to e.g. download IOS to a router with multihoming configured (and you want to specify which link should be used) or when access lists on other devices selectively block traffic forwarded by this router.
