Netstat question

Peter,

The first line (00:03:47:71:21:e7) is your IPv6 address, automatically
assigned at install time.  The second line is your IPv4 stats (I'm
guessing that gw-3 and network-3 are DNS or /etc/host resolved)

As for the stats difference (and I know that's your main question!) it
looks as though you have some IPv6 traffic on your network, my netstat
gives

fxp0  1500  <Link#2>    00:a0:c9:92:d4:85   989384     1   526214     0
3300
fxp0  1500  192.168.72    localhost         679893     -   200948     -
-

I'd be interested in any other responses as to where the IPv6 traffic is
coming from, some tcpdump work maybe...

Later,
