vos listaddrs -noresolv -printuuid lists two items; the local IP and some
long character string, IPv6, maybe?

IIRC there were duplicates prohibiting to create new accounts first, but
when I removed something from some conf (sorry, can't remember), it
allowed to create the account. Maybe I shouldn't have done it manually, or
should have refreshed it first. Or maybe I left the local address whereas
I should have left the public one? Or the public name is resolved to local
address, or something.
Sorry, I need to look into the server confs now...
