Description Bertil Askelid 1999-09-03 14:24:45 UTC
ping -c 1 host does not timeout. It sends off packets after
the first packet. When the host doesn't respond to the only
packet I asked ping to send, ping should timeout and
respond that host is not available.

What version of netkit-base are you using? The machine that i used to
verigy this problem has netkit-base-0.10-35 which doesnt seem to have
this problem. If you want to try this newer version it can be obtained


The problem may have been fixed in this newer package.
