I have a server with 2 nics and a webcam sofware that listen on port 4500 but for some reasons it always listen on the wrong nic. How can I force it to listen on the NIC I want.
Right now I disable the nic I don't want and restart it and it starts listening on the right NIC but when my computer reboots, I have to re-do that every time.

    Go into the network connections, click advanced on toolbar, advanced and change the order of the nics.
