onlynet is a config option in Bitcoin Core that allows you to control outbound connections based on type of network (ipv4, ipv6, onion, i2p).
Possible combinations (14):
- ipv4, ipv6
- ipv4, onion
- ipv4, i2p
- ipv6, onion
- ipv6, i2p
- ipv4, ipv6, onion
- ipv4, ipv6, i2p
- ipv4, onion, i2p
- ipv6, onion, i2p
What are the isssues with this option?
Some users are not aware that
onlynetis only for outbound connections
Outbound connections are still made to other networks in some cases which PR #22651 was trying to fix. A new PR #22834 was created to fix this issue based on suggestions by Wladimir van der Laan in a comment while reviewing another related PR.
More users have started experimenting and trying different combinations since i2p was added
An issues was also created to add checkboxes in GUI to select which networks to connect to: #413
