Summary0000367: changing port numbers does not take effect until restart
Descriptionin: Preferences>Connection:
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.
