The controller should be prevented from binding to loopback and APIPA addresses

    Binding to IP addresses assigned out of the ranges 127.0.0.0/8 and 169.254.0.0/16 will almost never result in a device that can be communicated with consistently. These ranges should be excluded by default from the search that the controller does on startup to find the network adapter to bind to if one is not explicitly set.
