Hi Phil,

As you suggested.... I had to open port 4944 (the hell I know why) and I
got only this message now:

Jul 20 00:36:50 livetool kernel: IN-inet:IN=enp6s1 OUT=
DST=ff02:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0001 LEN=144 TC=0 HOPLIMIT=255

any ideas ?!

I still don't know what port 4944 has it in.....

best, Tamer
