Inconsistent behavior: Ping.
I'm hoping there are some 'ping' guru's out there (if such a guru exists) because i've a questoin that has been annoying me for days now. Google doesn't seem to hold the answer, nor do the network admins/developers where i work.
I made a network utility that pings several hundred addresses, some of which are fed to the utility with a leading zero. For instance:
Why oh why would linux change 10.11.01.253 to 10.11.1.253 but leave 10.27.08.253 as-is? I've worked around the problem already, but am still stumped as to exactly what it is i had to work around.
