But first a funny (???) story.
I had my 7 year old daughter volunteer to help me on Friday with my work, on
my primary workstation, my notebook. I didn't even have to ask her nor did I
have to ask her to push the enter key, she read the screen and interpreted it
as " Press the return key to boot the computer", and of course she did.
I had burned a CD the night before and quite out of character, hadn't taken it
out of the drive. I followed my usual process of many days, turning on the
notebook and going to grab a java while it starts up. I ended up coming back
to my office after about 6 or 7 minutes only to see one long red line going
across the screen and another red line flashing across the screen just above
The CD was the latest honeynet "roo" and when you press enter it repartitions
the drive and installs itself. I suppose here is a lesson in there for me.
Now the dup-to resolution.
What happened was I had listed the dup-to interface and destination address
macros inside paranthesis separated by a coma and of course received a syntax
error. Naturally being as gifted as I obviously am, ( see story above ) I
substituted a pair of curly braces leaving the coma in but did not receive an
error so I had assumed that the syntax was correct. After taking a break and
rebuilding my notebook, I started thinking about the dup-to and remembered
that I didn't see a coma nor curly braces in the man page or FAQ etc. I guess
I am very used to separating values with that little coma.
Parenthesis and no coma, all is well.
Anyway Thanks for your responses, hope you got a bit of a chuckle out of the
