#5639 closed Enhancement (invalid)

Binding for idiots

Reported by: barelylegible Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone: None Set
Component: Transmission Version: 2.82+
Severity: Normal Keywords:


Like many I use a torrent client in tandem with a VPN. Also like many I use IP binding for additional protection. As I'm not the most technical user I rely upon Vuze for this job: its IP binding via the preferences is simple for a novice like myself.

However, of late I have grown tired of Vuze's complexities and stuttering support for Linux. Which is why I returned to the simplicity (and speed) of Transmission. Transmission can do everything I need and without making my desktop look like the control panel of the space shuttle. The one and only thing I miss while using Transmission is the assurance of the key binding.

I've read that there's a way to configure Transmission's innards manually to bind an IP address, but without a detailed step-by-step this would be far beyond my ability. Which is why I'm hoping that it might be possible to add a simple gui IP binding tool to Transmission's preferences. So I can rest more easily and stop checking the IP connection every 2 mins.

Thanks very much for your time and for anything you can do about the above. Thomas
