In the ini file of a Windows Agent the parameter bindaddr= is configured.

After starting the Agent the SystemOverview in the UserInterface and Administration page in AWI shows a different IP address. 

In the Agent Logfile the Agent also comes up with the wrong IP address. 

Investigation

Example:
In the Windows- Agent ini file the following is entered:
bindaddr=192.168.248.1 
bindlocal=1 

However in the System Overview in the column "IP address" a different address (not the one defined) is displayed.

In the Logfile of the Agent, the Host Information also shows a different IP address then defined in the parameter bindaddr.
