Subject: OT microsoft "feature"

"Anyone has a good explaination for this ? "

I'll leave it to you to decide if the explanation is good ...

"Windows NT utilities can accept Internet Protocol (IP) addresses comprised
of decimal, octal, or hexadecimal numbers. This can cause confusion if you
unintentionally use a leading zero in a decimal octet. With a leading zero,
the number is resolved by these utilities as an octal number, thus
specifying the wrong IP address. "
