Doc Text:
When domain name translation was forced to be carried out over the IPv6 protocol, the output of the "ping" command was incorrect as it displayed an incorrect IP address received from the internal library. The underlying logic has been modified to use the gethostbyname2() function instead of gethostbyname(), and domain name to IP address translation now works correctly.
