Hi, expert:

I am using dnsmasq as DHCPv6 server. By default, dnsmasq is bound to port 53. I used --port option to bind it to UDP/547, since this is what my DHCPv6 client sends the query to. However, the dnsmasq never saw the DHCPv6 packets coming in afterwards. Based on tcpdump, I could see DHCPv6 packets hit dnsmasq binding interface, but dnsmasq log didn't report anything.

So I am wondering whether the port other than 53 is supported?
