Hey Ilias,

it is best to ask these questions on devel at riot-os.org...

Please my current "implified border router" branch [1].

Compile, flash, then start "start_network.sh" as follows:
sudo sh start_network.st /dev/ttyXXX tap0 affe::/64

Make sure your Linux node has any non-link-local address configured on
any interface. If in doubt, add e.g., beef::1 to "lo".

Then, once running, at the ethos shell, configure affe::/64 on the
router's 6lowpan interface. Make sure to use the node's eui64 as last
64bit of its address.

E.g., my node has "fe80::5855:4443:9918:b576" on interface 5, so I
configure the prefix as "ifconfig 5 add affe::5855:4443:9918:b576".

RIOT still won't aswer pings to "affe::5855:4443:9918:b576" unless they
come from interface 5, but now other RIOT nodes should be pingable.
