Idea Details

The controller should be prevented from binding to loopback and APIPA addresses

Binding to IP addresses assigned out of the ranges 127.0.0.0/8 and 169.254.0.0/16 will almost never result in a device that can be communicated with consistently. These ranges should be excluded by default from the search that the controller does on startup to find the network adapter to bind to if one is not explicitly set.

Has anyone noticed when updating the IP of the controller through an automated fashion that sometimes the agent reverts back to the APIPA/loopback address?
