#1166 new feature-request

Add a unix socket for the daemon

Reported by: Damien Churchill Owned by: andar
Priority: major Milestone: Future
Component: Core Version: 1.2.1
Keywords: Cc:


Using Twisted adding a unix socket to the daemon will be incredibly easy so unless there is an incredibly performance hit or a drastic amount of additional memory is used then there seems to be no reason not to.

Yes, this is definitely possible. What is your motivation for this?

Means that there will be no TCP over head and also no possibility of any network mis-configuration causing issues. Had a user the other day who didn't have a lo interface. Granted definitely the users fault but the unix socket would've avoided any breakage.

I'd like to ask if there's still any interest in implementing this. I'd like to be able to connect to a daemon listening on a unix socket on a remote server I'm connecting to over SSH.

The goal I have in mind is to be able to have Deluge running in a separate Linux namespace with *only* a network interface for OpenVPN. That makes it complicated to allow remote hosts to connect to the daemon socket. I could do some magic with iptables but I'd rather not have to set that up.
