OpenBSD: ping command - bad interface address


Hi,
I have the following issue
Code:
$ ping -I urtw0 192.168.1.100
ping: bad interface address: urtw0
in the man for ``ping" it is not described a proper form for ``ifaddr", the parameter following -I option. What's wrong? Here is ``ifconfig" output
Code:
# ifconfig urtw0
urtw0: flags=8a43<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,ALLMULTI,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
        lladdr 00:06:4f:85:ad:3c
        priority: 4
        groups: wlan egress
        media: IEEE802.11 autoselect (DS1 mode 11g)
        status: active
        ..................................................................................................
        inet6 fe80::206:4fff:fe85:ad3c%urtw0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x6
        inet 192.168.1.103 netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast 192.168.1.255

Looks like the option is only for "multicast" address and seems it's not the thing you're trying to do.

If you haven't figured it out already, try:
Code:
ping -I 192.168.1.103 192.168.1.100
