rpc: allow to listen on UNIX domain socket

Reported by: ibukanov Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone: None Set
Component: Transmission Version: 2.84
Severity: Normal Keywords:


Currently I expose transmission RPC interface over ssh to allow secure and passwordless authentication. However, as the transmission RPC port is exposed to every process in the system, this is not ideal. It would ve nice if transmission could listen on UNIX domain socket. Then I can restrict access to the socket using filesystem permissions and then use ssh socket forwarding to let remote clients to access RPC.
