Umm... on Server the IP is set manually to so it has a 
fixed address. This is why I'm wondering about the IPv4LL address 
displayed on client. How can I get rid of this?
Sometime I just got "169.254.9.XXX". (this is bad)
Sometime I got "169.254.9.XXX" and after some seconds I got 
"". (this is ok)
