Messages like "Waiting for new IP" and coloring link lines because of this status are not helpful. The link is waiting its turn and that has nothing to do with the IP. There is a link in a wait with a countdown, that should be shown.

The "Waiting for new IP" makes users panic about not being able to reconnect. Since Reconnect is an advanced feature and is not always possible, this is counter productive and greatly adds to Support needs.

Any other messages that propagate to all links from a host should also be removed.
