Description Yanko Kaneti 2005-04-04 19:28:06 UTC
This is a inadvertent and suboptimal change of behavior in 2.6.4 

The are plenty of reasons why one might want to bind _the client_ to a different
interface on a multihomed system. I personally use it depending on the which of
my two upstream links has more free capacity.

Please revert the behavior.

Allow the --address option to be parsed in client mode.

This change to option.c re-allows the use of --address in the client (for use
when connecting to an rsync daemon).
