Select multiple IP addresses to bind #9829

qBittorrent version and Operating System

4.1.1, Win10

The feature request

I want to bind qbittorrent on my IPv4 address and on one of my multiple IPv6 addresses.

My Computer's IPv6 interface has multiple auto-configured IP addresses. One includes my computer's MAC address and another is a temporary address which the OS uses for all outgoing connection (Thus protects my privacy). It also gets expired after some time and the OS regenerates a new one. There is also another one which is served by my router DHCPv6 (This one is also random and it has very high expiration value).

Thus, selecting to bind on "all IPs" is a privacy concern because it will also bind to that IPv6 (generated from MAC) and announce that to trackers.

I want to manually select one of the IPv6 and one IPv4 address from the list. Is this possible?
