I have a network that pinging from Windows shows a standard reply. When pinging from Ubuntu a 64big host redirect is returned. The network is designed with a DHCP helper in the router which I cannot control which may be the cause. I am using Nagios on Ubuntu to do a check ping and would like to know if there is a way to suppress any redirect messages and just show the pings bytes, time and ttl. I don't care if the packet is redirected. If there is a ping option or an option within the os configuration to suppress all redirect messages that would work.
