With the current client it is impossible to start mulitple instances of bitcoin on one system, as they compete for the listen port. This patch adds a command line option to not accept bitcoin connection from outside.

This can be useful in some cases:

  • Testing e-commerce software on the testnet with multiple clients on one machine (akin to paypal sandbox testing)
  • When multiple users on one shared server want to run the bitcoin client
  • As a primitive security measure

Of course it would be even better to specify a port to listen on on the command line, but as I understood the current protocol has no support for alternative ports, so this would be useless at this stage.

Pulled into the git integration repository.

How often do you get the chance to work on a potentially world-changing project?

Is there any indication of a time frame when this will be available in the standard windows binary? I'm just dying to try out this feature as I need it to create multiple bitcoin services on one machine.

Thanks in advance!

Gavin, is this still part of your tree?

It seems your 'master' branch no longer exists and this isn't part of 'svn'. Does one of the other branches have it?
