I am glad the issue is resolved. By default, Ignite will bind to all the
local network interfaces, and if they are provided in different order, it
may create the situation you witnessed.

All enterprise users explicitly specify which network address to bind to,
just like you did. This helps avoid any kind of magic in production.
