I had Syncthing running quite while for a long time, lately, I get the following error on my Mac OSX 12.3.1
[YZT3X] 09:23:35 WARNING: Starting API/GUI: listen tcp 127.0.0.1:8384: bind: can't assign requested address
I know this has been asked already and yes, I did check that nothing is blocking this port.
lsof -i :8384 ➜ Syncthing
I even tried
nc -l 8384
and that worked fine.
I also checked that there are no instances of Syncthing running.
If I reconfigure the ip address in config.xml to my local ip (192.168.x.x) then it starts up.
Something seems to be preventing it from binding the port on localhost.
Note that I had tried to change to other ports such as 8385, 8386 and that did not help either.
Any guidance would be appreciated.
