#462 closed Bug (fixed)

CLI :: The -p --port command line param doesn't work

Reported by: mikeal Owned by: charles
Priority: Normal Milestone: 1.00
Component: CLI Version: 0.92
Severity: Normal Keywords:


I'm trying to run two instances of the command line client with the port parameter and it's failing to bind to the default port even when changing it in the command line.

I'm on debian and built from source 0.92

port forwarding has changed significantly since 0.92. could you please test this in svn trunk and add a comment here about whether the problem persists or not?

I can confirm this, I've launched it with -p 5050, and I'm seeing outgoing connection from my TCP port 63190, 63232, 63238, ... I also saw some "Couldn't connect socket (Can't assign requested address)"...

working fine here with 0.93 and tf-cli (which is only different in handling status-output).

 netstat -e -l -p --tcp --numeric-hosts --numeric-ports 2> /dev/null | grep transmission

to detect the ports of transmission

Now this is wierd... I'm using OSX 10.5, the netstat cmd above doesn't work, so I'm using lsof | grep trans, which outputs (IP addresses removed): TCP myBook:51686->*:52380 (ESTABLISHED) TCP myBook:51693->*:23363 (SYN_SENT) TCP myBook:51694->*:6881 (SYN_SENT) TCP myBook:51681->*:32281 (ESTABLISHED) TCP myBook:51683->*:55555 (ESTABLISHED) TCP myBook:51689->*:44909 (SYN_SENT) TCP myBook:51690->*:12414 (ESTABLISHED)

lsof with running : TCP myBook:52096->*:14150 (SYN_SENT) TCP myBook:52097->*:21440 (SYN_SENT) TCP myBook:52101->*:57419 (ESTABLISHED) TCP myBook:52100->*:12311 (SYN_SENT) TCP myBook:52104->*:websm (SYN_SENT) TCP myBook:52095->*:58005 (ESTABLISHED)

So it seems its only broken on Darwin...

mikeal: does .96 work for you?

comment:8 Changed 14 years ago by tiennou

r4167 still does this.

  • Milestone changed from None Set to 1.00
  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

Fixed in r4411 -- I think this was the timing issue that plagued the gtk+ client too. Switcing from tr_init() to tr_initFull() so that we pass in the port number to the libtransmission init function should fix the issue.
