Hi, everybody,

i start dnsmasq as following:

/usr/sbin/dnsmasq -K -D -y -Z -b -E -z -s local -S /local/ -S
/somedomain.su/192.168.255.1#54 at lo -l /tmp/dhcp.leases -r
/tmp/resolv.conf.auto.isp
--dhcp-range=lan,192.168.255.100,192.168.255.250,255.255.255.0,12h -2
eth1 -2 eth0.1

and i get following error:

dnsmasq: failed to bind server socket for 192.168.255.1 lo: Invalid argument

Is this a bug?

The system is OpenWRT on MIPSEL.
Dnsmasq versions 2.50 and 2.51 tested.

This error message appears when I use -z option.
I've tried following:
 -z
 -z -i br-lan (which has 192.168.255.1 address)
 -z -a 192.168.255.1
 -z -a 192.168.252.2
 -z -a 192.168.253.1
all these cases lead to the above error message. I think if address
doesn't matter here, so it is a bug.

Thanks in advance,
Fedor.
