[OLSR-users] Running two insances of olsr

the quick-and-dirty way of doing this is to use different UDP ports
for the two instances. E.g. you change the definition of OLSRPORT
in src/olsr_protocol.h from the IANA assigned port 698 to some
port in the "private" port space for all IPv6 olsr daemons.
If trying to use the same port the socket binding will crash.

I was under the understanding that UDP ports were different entities
when using IPv6 from IPv4... but this seems not to be the case. I guess
since UDP is above IP in the layered model, the IPversion is actually
transparent to the transport layer? If this is the case, then no
services can run instances in both IPv4 and IPv6 binding to the same
Please clarify if I'm wrong.
