claim_info IPv6$,... works. (the trailing '$' means that no characters

Good supposition ;-> Port 7001 gives raw FXTP output, and should be used in
preference to the telnet face. This is another feature that's
poorly-documented, and which I'll rectify. In brief, port 7001's output is
always unformatted, unlike, say, the output of 'account' on the telnet face.
Each command's output is terminated by a '.' on a line by itself. Currently,
lines are terminated only by newline characters rather than newline+CR. Hope
this helps.
