I've noticed that on a server that I have 2 Ip addresses on the server chooses the lowest number as it's primary IP address. In the "good old days" like 2003, the primary address was the one you first setup in the gui.

Is there a away to change that behaviour so I may freely choose what the preferred/primary IP is the one I want it to be?
