Bug Description

Binary package hint: ipkungfu

If you have a host with the same interface on two different subnets, you end up with syntax errors that prevent ipkungfu from working.

The fix, to /usr/sbin/ipkungfu is:

# Detect EXT_NET if not specified
if [ -z "$EXT_NET" ] ; then
 EXT_NET=`route -n | grep ^0.0.0.0 | awk '{print $8}'`
fi

becomes:

# Detect EXT_NET if not specified
if [ -z "$EXT_NET" ] ; then
 EXT_NET=`route -n | grep ^0.0.0.0 | awk '{print $8}' | head -n1`
fi

That is, add the "| head -n1" part.

For the record, I haven't used ipkungfu in years (since ufw was introduced). I've removed by direct subscription to this bug, as I no longer care.
