Some simple logic to put the IP address of a specific interface into your /etc/sysconfig/transmission-daemon to get it to bind to that interface while issue https://trac.transmissionbt.com/ticket/2313 gets worked out. This applies to RHEL based installations.
# Username/password example
# DAEMON_ARGS="-b -t -a \"*.*.*.*\" -e /var/log/transmission/transmission.log"
# No username/password, but limited to 192.168.1.*
# DAEMON_ARGS="-b -T -a \"192.168.1.*\" -e /var/log/transmission/transmission.log"
INTERFACE=ppp0
