Hi Alex

Like the new version - thanks!

I think I should be able to do this already but can't see how...

I want to ping a FQDN and return as part of the result the target IP. (To track a DHCP problem..)

I know I can 'sort of' use the DNS test for this but I want to avoid using the actual DNS if possible...

Thanks as ever,

brgds

David

Mark "Tune up reply value" option in Test Properties dialog and use ['%IP4%'] as expression

Regards
