Indeed. It works now and BabelTool is quite nice too. Thanks.

However I now have a new problem...

Originally I used the following babel.conf:
redistribute local ip ::/0
redistribute local deny

Together with an address configuration like:
ip addr add 2a02:60:2::1/64 dev vlan0

However I noticed that babel only advertises 2a02:60:2::1/128 but not the
network that is locally reachable.

So I changed babel.conf like this:
redistribute ip ::/0
redistribute local deny

Now babel advertises two routes:

This is not what I had intended. Did I miss something? Is this a bug?

Also note that if I add some non local route like
ip route add 2a02:60:2:1::/64 via fe80::218:f8ff:fe23:ef79 dev vlan0
then this seems silently ignored by babel.
