Sierra Chart Server - Allowed Incoming IPs

On my computer, I have three network cards as such when setting "Allowed Incoming IPs:" to "Local Subnet Only", seems Sierra Chart only considers the first network card's subnet while ignoring the other ones.

Net, with all three network cards enabled, I get "DTC Protocl server | Rejecting connection from 192.168.1.x | ..." message.
If I just keep enabled one network card (the one where the connecting client is on), then SC accepts the connection.

Due to security considerations I don't want to use "Any IP".

Request: update the logic for "Local Subnet Only" to have a for loop that considers all enabled network cards's subnets and rename it to "Local Subnets Only".

The way this works is we get the IP address of the address returned by gethostname. What we can do later is allow you to specify a subnet list.

The thing to do is just to allow any IP and then set up rules within the Windows firewall for Sierra Chart to control this exactly as you require.

Getting a subnet list and specifying the intended one would work also.
