Hi Carter!

That was super-fast, thanks! So I copied those two files into common, make 
cleaned, make, but I'm still not seeing any IPv6 traffic. I'd be interested to 
know if anyone else has tried it and has gotten it to work.

What do you need for the flow captures, just a very verbose tcpdump? I can do 
that and then sanitize the actual IP addresses for you. Let me know if that's 
good enough.

Thanks again!
