You have some wrong torrc options.

They used to work because we didn't had a clear logic, there has been a 
lot of improvements made since IPv6 Address auto discovery was implemented.

Please see my corrections in line as well as explanations. Hope they 
make sense.

This is ok, you configured and explicit IP address.

> ORPort 9443 NoListen IPv4Only

This is not ok, the NoAdvertise ORPort is explicit <local-ip> but this 
is wildcard to all interfaces.

IPv4Only either you use it for both NoListen and NoAdvertise ORPort 
either you don't use it at all since you use AddressDisableIPv6.

This line should be:
ORPort <public-ip>:9443 NoListen

> AddressDisableIPv6 1

This is OK. Or you can use IPv4Only for both ORPort entries and it will 
have the same effect.

> OutboundBindAddress <local-ip>

This is also OK.

Please try with my example and remove as it's not our scope, we 
are trying to configure explicit binding IP addresses. Let me know if 
this works for you -- it should be a correct configuration.
