IP changes after restart



After each server restart configuration of "choose IP-address for Webserver" changes from "all IPs" to "localhost" so that no external Access is anymore possible.

Than it is necessary to Switch back to "all IPs".

Is it possible to change that behaviour so also after a restart webserver is available not only from localhost?

ip port webserver

Hi, is the network address of the machine static or assigned by a DHCP server? If the address is assigned by a DHCP server, please try a static IP.

If the address is already static, maybe the core server is starting before the address is assigned to the interface. For this case you can try the Automatic (Delayed-Starttyp) which is available since Windows Vista.
