[Dibbler] dibbler-client does not start (Lubuntu 14.04)

Hi,
I'm trying to play with DHCPv6 to learn the protocol and its configuration using dibbler.

I use two virtual machines running Lubuntu 14.04.

I have installed the dibbler-server on one machine and the dibbler-client on the other.

Starting the dibbler-server seems to work.

However, I can't get the dibbler-client to start - and I also don't get any error messages that would help me to troubleshoot.

I don't want to start the client and server automatically, I do it manually with the start commands. I want to configure eth1.

See below what happens.

The client claims to start without error, but it seems there's no client process running afterwards.

No IPv6 address is assigned to eth1 - but IPv6 is active, there's a link-local address on the interface.

For other testing purposes, I have the Linux network-manager disabled on the machines - can this be a problem?

What else could it be?

Best regards, Simon
