Their is no reason to use separate ips and ports just ports will do.
You can not use separate ips as when an app is bound to a specific
ip it can not receive packets destined for any other ip this includes
broadcast packets it has nothing to do with first response etc.

So to recap: multi IP's will NOT work only multi ports.
