I want to Splunk to listen on a specific interface not 0.0.0.0. How do I do this?

You can set SPLUNK_BINDIP in etc/splunk-launch.conf, eg

SPLUNK_BINDIP=127.0.0.1

The address must be an address that the host actually has, for useful results.

Works okay at face value, but it seems to break Splunk Web, since the Web Server apparently still looks for the loopback IP (127.0.0.1) for management (8089). Not sure what other features using this setting might break.
Edited Looked more into the documentation. If you intend on using Web, ensure you configure web.conf to use the specified IP. See https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.5.2/Admin/BindSplunktoanIP for details

Probably not. I'm not aware of any ability to do so.
