Notes:

  • The Adapters and Bindings tab lists the connections in order in which the connections are accessed by network services. The order of these connections reflects the order in which TCP/IP or the next available protocol is bound to the network adapters. The bindings for remote access connections apply to all remote access connections.
  • The Provider Order tab lists the network providers for this computer. You can use the arrow buttons to change the order in which these providers are accessed. You can arrange the order in which the computer accesses information about the network. Providers and other connections are accessed in the order in which the providers and the connections are listed.

 

Additionally, you may need to go to properties of the NIC. Select TCP/IPV4 and properties.

Uncheck automatic metric and put a 1 there.

After restarting Orion module engine, the correct IP address should appear in the engines table.
