Package `coturn` provides a systemd unit named `turnserver`. After properly configuring the turnserver, I have no problem starting the unit with `systemctl start turnserver` and using it.

The issue occurs when doing `systemctl enable turnserver` and rebooting. The unit is reported as failing to start after the reboot. The relevant warnings and errors reported on `journalctl -u turnserver` are:

turnserver[341]: 0: : ERROR: main: Cannot configure any meaningful IP listener address
systemd[1]: turnserver.service: Control process exited, code=exited, status=255/EXCEPTION
systemd[1]: turnserver.service: Failed with result 'exit-code'.
systemd[1]: Failed to start STUN and TURN relay server for VoIP and WebRTC.

If I restart the unit with `systemctl restart turnserver`, the unit starts properly.

I managed a workaround (so that it starts correctly after reboot) by doing `systemctl edit turnserver` and adding:


and it worked! I just wanted to open this bug report to leave this as a suggestion to the package maintainer.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
* config and/or log files etc.
* link to upstream bug report, if any

Steps to reproduce:
