Re: I am a bear of very little brain.

as a bolt on privacy consideration an IPv6 address can be assigned per application flow. the reason why your unix like os is only showing 3 addresses in use is because unix is relatively quiet vs windows. If your unix os was as busy as windows it'd have 20 ipv6 addresses too.
