I guess it will use the interface with the right IP to
reach the nodes ;-) or the one used to reach the
default router if the nodes are outside any of its
local networks
I guess, in your configuration, if the nodes names are
bounding to IP 192.168.100.x (through DNS or
/etc/hosts) then cluster applications will use eth0
for its traffic
am I wrong?

/etc/hosts in each developer computer?
