 From your original question it's not clear whether FreeBSD 12.2 system 
is the client or server, and given the above I'm guessing it's the 
former as remote version doesn't say "FreeBSD" and is otherwise 
outdated; correct?

Also, are you able to connect to 2607:f130::6287 from any other host to 
make sure it's correct address to use and is accepting v6 connections?
