Description Robert Scheck 2007-03-26 16:27:08 EDT
Description of problem:
Currently, neither ping nor ping6 provide IDN (umlaut domains) support, I've 
worked out a small patch adding this feature.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Everytime, try "ping dänic.de" for example.

Actual results:
No IDN (umlaut domains) support in ping and ping6.

Expected results:
IDN support in ping and ping6 for more usability like at traceroute, jwhois, 
Mozilla Firefox and Opera for example.

Additional info:
My patch isn't that sane and the definement should be moved somewhere else, but 
I'm sending this patch to upstream to. Adding this patch requires libidn-devel 
as additional build requirement, as long as getaddrinfo() is used always (!) in 
favour over gethostbyname().
