Thanks, that works for me.

I have established that I've mistaken the meaning of "self". I wanted to
use that to prevent routes learned over iBGP getting announced to eBGP
peers. They'll get announced though because they are (of course) from
the same AS.

Probably I need a filter list to get the behaviour I expect. This works
well with IPv4, but not with IPv6:

/etc/bgpd.conf:77: king bula sez: AF_INET only

Whereas line 77 is:

allow to $peer1 prefix fd:202c:ffff:80::/64

Is it planned to implement IPv6 prefixes in the filters?

How well is IPv6 tested yet? I have seen some older postings which state
that it's not well tested. I plan to use v4 and v6, but I need the later
one for the time being only for testing and development purposes and not
for critical applications. Shall I worry about not fully tested v6 support?
