I got the impression from my introduction to IPv6 that you really weren't mean to use IPs very much at all -- clients get dynamically assigned numbers, and the routers are meant to be able to dynamically reassign those numbers whenever the router's admin sees fit, without having to manually change the client. So I guess the idea is you use "host*name*:port" and use different notation for "ip & port" whenever it's necessary (ie, doing ipchains, and setting up the interface in the first place). I'm not particularly sure of this however. Cheers, aj -- Anthony Towns <firstname.lastname@example.org> <http://azure.humbug.org.au/~aj/> I don't speak for anyone save myself.
