Makes sense. Thanks for the tip!

Is leafnode-2 different from the "leafnode+" port (2.14)? I was under
the impression that the different trees would be merged somewhere in the
future but could not find an up to date source.

For now I will probably set up a simple port redirector that listens on
a local IPv4 port; if that doesn't work then I will try leafnode-2. I
just want to be a little vain with my IPv6 NNTP-Posting-Host (and be
able to troll without being packetflooded!;), when I have more time I
will check out the alpha version.

Thanks for the info!
