             Summary: Windows may retrieve network configuration before all 
network interfaces are initialized
                 Key: VCL-588
             Project: VCL
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: vcld (backend)
    Affects Versions: 2.2.1
            Reporter: Andy Kurth
            Assignee: Andy Kurth
             Fix For: 2.3

A Windows image may boot, runs update_cygwin.cmd, then responds to SSH before 
all network interfaces are initialized.  This particularly has been known to 
affect Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008.  This causes all sorts of problems.  
The code which attempts to determine which is the public and private interface 
gets confused.  It may return the private interface name instead of the public, 
and subsequent code may change the settings and break SSH.

One improvement that will help:  Add code to try to determine if everything has 
been initialized before running ipconfig to retrieve the network configuration.
