Thank you very much. I copied and pasted the commands and got an
ifconfig output similar to yours, only with different IP and MAC
addresses and different values in the statistics.
Then I tried to bind to the IPv6 IP address of this entry, on port 60000
and this did not work.
Do I have to create an additional IP address? If yes, how? Do I have to
run additional commands (route?)? Which ones?
