no..let me clarify..the IP that port 16567 binds to is the primary..no matter 
what I put in the serversettings it ALLWAYS binds to it.

but when I look at the server monitor it shows the IP I set in the server vonfig file :)

and also..the second port (41195) is ALLWAYS diffrent.
I just started up the server again and now it's 43548
