Can't reproduce this here; in any case, if the address is set properly (check e.g. /sbin/ip addr list), this isn't
net-tools' fault.

I strongly believe this is a local configuration issue, or something to that effect.  Please clarify.

Closing due to inactivity. And it really sounds like a configuration problem.

Read ya, Phil
