Bind to specific NW Adapter + disconnect/reconnect = no downloads #7540
Using QBittorrent 3.16 on Windows 10.
I use a VPN which creates a virtual Network adapter (PIA). I have QBittorrent setup to bind only to this NW interface, with "Optional IP address to bind" set to "All addresses". This works well, all traffic goes via VPN.
With VPN disconnected, I can see in netstat that Qbt is still binding a port to the interface (listening). If I go to Settings and try to change the port, it will not change, same port remains attached.
The IP address of the VPN Interface doesn't usually change with disconnect/reconnect.
It's likely this behavior can also be reproduced without VPN, with a regular NW adapter -> just select the network adapter in the "Advanced -> Network Interface" option and then disable/enable it to test.

qBittorrent 3.3.16 on Windows 10 with OpenVPN
It seems Internet Provider temporally disable my Internet connection when it detects a traffic that looks like Bittorrent download.
Could you advise me on what part of the code I should look at to make qBittorrent reconnect automatically?
