Quote from: UltraZero on July 13, 2011, 04:35:45 PMI understand, but, why is it that some ping responses are not in IP/IPv6 numerical format?? This is kinda something new to me. I alwaysin the past saw numerical responses and not fqdn as a response.Thanks for th -n option (didn't see this in the --help under Linux. )Is this something of an IP/IPv6 mask?? I did some digging and noticed this is a router option to mask the routers IP address.

If you want just the IP for that FQDN your pinging then use the -n option as already stated.
