Well, if netcat found it, that's fine too. I just recommended rxperf
since it's closer to the 'real' workload; but if you've already found
the problem, there's not much need to look more...

If I understand your description of the setup correctly, I think so.
This implies that is in the list of addresses for one of
the local network interfaces, and that is not. If that is
the case, the server will advertise those two addresses to other servers
and clients, and other addresses on the local network interfaces will be

That is, "ignored" for the purposes of advertising addresses; we still
accept packets for anything routed to us.
