|Target Version||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0000367: changing port numbers does not take effect until restart|
after changing the client ports changes are delayed until next restart of amule. this is to preserve open communication targeted to the old port.
drawback: now the user has great trouble to change his network settings: he changes ports and sets his router to forward ports appropriately and ... nothing works.
there should at least be a note in the preferences panel which warns the user that these changes do not take effect until he stops/restarts amule.
immediately using the new ports would still be a better solution imho, even if i lose some chunks. but when changing ports i expect traffic disruption anyway. thou a warning note that current connections may close added to the dialog won't harm.
or change to new port but leave old ports open for a while (e.g. 1 hour) though even this might come unexpected to the user.

|I'm not sure that this is feasible. The main issue is that all clients that have previously connected to us will still be using the old ports.|
|I would say drop all sockets, but then again that would be exactly like restarting.|
|UDP-sockets can now (thanks to the CMuleUDPSocket class) be easily enhanced to support rebinding.|
