bind-address-ipv6 not keeping its settings.

Post by ranpha »

Hello,

I have a problem with bind-address-ipv6 not keeping its setting when the daemon is started. Every time I edit the said option in settings.json while the daemon is off, from the default "::" to something like "[2a00:dd80:fb80::200]" (example only), when I start the daemon again, the 'bind-address-ipv6' value will revert back to "::".

transmission version is the latest one (2.84), libevent is 2.0.21 and OS is CentOS 6.5 64-bit.

But, is that the one that Transmission is loading?

Yes, it is the one Transmission is loading, there are no other settings.json in the system. Other options like 'speed-limit-up', 'speed-limit-up-enabled', 'upload-slots-per-torrent',' download-dir' et. al which values I have also changed, works correctly in transmission-daemon. Only 'bind-address-ipv6' does not work, transmission-daemon binds itself to all IPv6 addresses that is present on eth0 interface, when I only wants transmission-daemon to use only one of it.
