we can see that
"The scope_id refers to an interface on the local system, and it can be
specified in two ways.
1. As a numeric identifier........
2. As a string. This must be the exact string that is returned by
NetworkInterface.getName() for the particular interface in question.
When an Inet6Address is created in this way, the numeric scope-id is
determined at the time the object is created by querying the relevant
I have configured a host where NetworkInterface.getName() returns
"eth0.1_55", i.e. "dot" and "underscore" should be added to allowed chars.
And it seems we do not have to change that specification.
