Thanks Jima and Simon.  The new code causes host to respond as expected.

Part of the problem is that IPv6 is still on my list of things to do.
Hopefully by March, I'll be able to re-do the LAN.

I've taken a quick look again at the man page and the sample
configuration file and see no (obvious) mention if 'address=" can be
used to return IPv6 addresses.  That might also be a work-around.
