Transmission-daemon doesn't listen on RPC port

note: started a new thread as the old one was confusing and I finaly found the cause of my problem, just need to sort it out

The problem is that transmission-daemon doesn't listen on RPC port set in settings.json

Did a fresh install of Debian Wheezy, graphical install, no desktop, just SSH and system utilities chossen from install menu

After system install, aptitude update and transmission-daemon transmission-common transmission-cli instalation

everything worked fine right after instalation of the daemon, I stopped the daemon, changed the settings.json file, didn't start the daemon, but reboot the system and it all worked fine, but ...

once (ONCE !!!) I type in the console /etc/init.d/transmission-daemon start - the daemon will never more listen on rpc port on system start (boot), I have to restart or stop/start it manualy, then everything works, but I want it to work automaticaly after system power on

anyone knows why???? ... I need to get this fixed, reinstalled system 8 times because of this problem - to find where exactly it gets broken

people please help me

OS: debian wheezy
Config: Gigabyte E350N WIN8, 1 x 4GB Kingston HyperX 1666, 3TB WD Red, headless

EDIT: OK, found how to make it start automaticaly after power on, all I have to do is restart twice in a row without starting the daemon manualy, don't know why, but that's the way it works, once I start/restart the daemon manualy, I have to reboot twice in a row, the second time it start automaticaly
Might be because my system is atm using different NIC driver, I've got realtek 8168b and it's using 8169, so I have to learn how to install the driver from realtek website and that might cure the problem

Sorry for necro, but I was having this exact problem (transmission-daemon not binding RPC on wheezy) and this thread was pretty high up in the Google searches I did.

For me, I think disabling exim4 and bind9 did the trick as they were installed by default on my box and I wasn't using them.

# update-rc.d bind9 disable
# update-rc.d exim4 disable

Worked fine for me, then next reboot transmission bound to RPC with no issues.

If you're not going to use them, I'd remove them too:

# apt-get remove bind9{,utils} exim4{,-base,-config,-daemon-light}
