 Subject:  Bug or feature (ping)?
 Date:  Mon, 8 Mar 2004 13:33:32 +0100
Dear all,

I've just switched from ipcop and I'm very impressed. There is one thing
I don't understand and couldn't find in the archives.

When I use 'Diagnostic/Ping', I can't use hostnames which containes '-',
like 'fs-lx-01', which is one of my servers. When pressing the 'Ping'
button, the hyphens are simply removed and of course the ping doesn't
work (ping: cannot resolve fslx01: Unknown host).

But by using 'exec.php' I can simply enter 'ping -c 5 fs-lx-01' and it
works like expected.

Is this by purpose, a bug or do I simply miss something?
