Gnome Remote Desktop Server Configuration

My query relates to setting up gnome-remote-desktop server so it can be used over an ssh tunnel. I want to be able to set the Networks interface to localhost rather than the LAN interface. In short it does not appear to be possible and I wondered if I found a bug?

Many thanks Greg

After some investigation and testing it appears impossible to select an interface other than the one it defaults to. I set up my hp Z800 second Ethernet so it connected and the UI fails to allow me to choose it. I tried to set-up a virtual network using Zerotier. I made a successful connection but again the remote desktop UI will not allow me to select it.

Is there a config file I can edit, a way forward because this now KINDA SUCKS.

Thanks in anticipation.
