Hi just stumbled over this. If I try to do a dump to a file which has a ':' in its name or path, dump tries to connect to a server (which is obvious as this is the notation for a remote dump).
example: # dump -f some:file /var DUMP: rcmd: getaddrinfo: hostname nor servname provided, or not known DUMP: login to some as root failed. escaping (dump -f "some\:file" /var) does not work. Is this behaviour intended? Is there a workaround? (besides making a symlink w/o the : in the name or using another filename/path) regards Ste P.S. rsync (and probably some other tools using the same notation) behave the same _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
