But... do the clients? I hear nowadays Linux can do that, for example.
The problem might be that the servers won't recognize the clients if
they come in via v6 from a temporary address.

(I had much ... fun ... diagnosing why WIndows XP could lpr print on
our NetBSD server while Windows 7 (Vista?) couldn't...)

Do the servers have useful log about why they refused to serve?
