in thread Net::Ping broken on Solaris?

Thanks shmem. Unfortunately, my colleague can bind any address he wants, even weird or non-existent ones, and the module flawlessly fails to notice. It still uses the... er, default interface.

Any clues? Should I go and try to patch the module myself?

Ciao!

In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.

    No further clue atm; and - if it's broken, u-fix-it :-)

    But it might be the case that binding a socket to an interface just isn't possible on Solaris.

    Why is interface binding necessary?

    --shmem

    _($_=" "x(1<<5)."?\n".q·/)Oo.  G°\        /
                                  /\_¯/(q    /
    ----------------------------  \__(m.====·.(_("always off the crowd"))."·
    ");sub _{s./.($e="'Itrs `mnsgdq Gdbj O`qkdq")=~y/"-y/#-z/;$e.e && print}

      Sorry for not being back for a while... :-( Because the script is part of a monitoring system, and he needs to check that a device is reachble from that specific interface.

      Hmm... I guess that, unless he already solved the problem, I'll have to try a patch :-D. Thanks anyway!

      Ciao!
