interface_traffic is the only probe on a single hub machine where the GUI opens but it stays in a state of 'initializing' then fails with a generic Windows network error 80040402 type error. (failed to communicate with controller (80040402)

- All other probes/GUIs open up fine.
- GUI open but no profiles/checkpoints are displayed. GUI is empty.
- Local firewall has nothing to do with it as we also disabled it and tested it again.
- controller first probe port is set.
- We can access the probe from another machine / robot with no problem.
- We can connect to the robot over port 48000 and from the IM tools connect.
- probe is collecting QOS data

Upgrading the hub probe from 7.61 to 7.62 resolved the issue. Basically the interface_traffic probe runs a ton of probe callbacks and there were some problems with those callbacks being run over multiple network hops in hub 7.61, and 7.62 resolves this issue.
