"Could not bind to local IP address" error when executing a load test with IP multiplexing
When a load test is executed which uses IP multiplexing, the following error may occur:
"Could not bind to local IP address".
A possible reason for this error is because there are unassigned IP addresses on the NIC, and they take precedence over any other valid media with an assigned IP address, as shown in ipconfig /all.
To avoid this error, remove the unused connections (Media disconnected) that appear in the sample image below:
This error might not occur if all valid connections with an assigned IP address take precedence over unused connections.
