Whow, I have been asleep at the switch on this one.  Did not see it in 
any notes, but then that is more than likely my fault.  So I got a lot 
of reading to do, and then figure out why no IP addresses (v4 or v6) are 
getting assigned.  I figure out enough of the IP command to see no 
addresses.  Even if there is a problem with my DHCP server, I am sending 
out RA messages, so there should be a global IP address.  I will dig a 
bit and see if I can get addressing to come up properly.

Of course with no addressing, the address I *THOUGHT* this box took was 
actually another test box that has SSH on another port, of course ssh 
was not connecting.  'firewall-cmd --list-all-zones' shows that the ssh 
service is allowed in; no change to default setups there.

ANd I cannot install net-tools until I get addressing working.

So at least I know I have a 'working' system to some definition of 
working and I can go off and learn what has changed and how to live with 
the changes.

thank you
