Hello René,

I have been upstream to check out that ticket.

What I cannot understand is that the Windows version of BOINC does in
fact bind just to the localhost and not network adaptors by default.
I have no idea why this needs to be different between OS's.

Given that upstream has already commented I have decided to remove the
linux version of BOINC from all my machines, so I recommmend closing
this bug report.

Thank you for your timely efforts, it's a pleasure to deal with a
responsive developer.
